Secret Santa

A mysterious box appeared on the front porch this morning, delivered from Nonnie Waller's Traditional Southern (http://www.nonniewallers.com/). Have you ever heard of this company? Until a few years ago, I hadn't either. Then in 2004, I think it was, a box from there appeared at Christmas. Inside is a hatbox sort of thingie...very lush, very fancy. You take off the lid, move aside all the tissue and foam padding, and a gorgeous little nosegay of fresh flowers comes into view. Remove it carefully because it is placed in the open center of a pound cake. And this, let me tell you, is some great pound cake! The cake is nestled into the bottom of the "hatbox"and the flowers set inside the opening (the cake is baked in a pan like an angel food cake pan or a bundt pan, with the open center). Now this is a luxe gift if ever there was one!
The only problem with it is----I have no idea who is sending this Yuletide offering each year! I wish they would come forward and admit that they are the exceedingly generous person who is gifting me so lavishly. I promise I would hug them and thank them and maybe even give them a kiss on the cheek! I would even write a proper thank you note as my mother taught me to do. WHO ARE YOU? Really, WHO ARE YOU? This is driving me crazy.....

Dear Secret Santa, whoever you are, delighted and sincere thanks.

Go into your bedroom, close the door and THINK about your behavior. Of course it still works. I'm still your mother, missy!
