This week I went on a little walk around the downtown D.C. area, there were so many places to eat that I had a hard time picking which place to go to. Downtown D.C. has a wide variety of places, new shops, stores or markets can pretty much pop up out of nowhere. The changes of scenery are never ending.
The first thing always present was a little white bear with a red sewn-on jacket, a small, simple bear with a scarf that held not one, but two, jingle bells.
This little white bear with the red sewn-on jacket waltzed into my arms one day, cheerfully singing “Jingle Bells” with each hug. It was only natural that he/she would be called “Jingles.”
Through the years, Jingles went through the first day at a new school, the first scary movie marathon, the introduction to middle school wars, and then to high school's teen yearnings and groanings. Read more about Jingles
