It’s the blanket your mom bought for you when you moved into your dorm room freshman year and tearily folded up at the foot of your bed. Now, you grab it when you’re settling in with your popcorn bowl to watch “Sleepless in Seattle” for the 10,000th time.
It’s the blanket you didn’t register for during wedding planning, but your great aunt saw it and knew you needed. Now you wrap yourself in it when the chills hit during that cold that came out of nowhere.
It’s the blanket your best friend got for you when you had your first baby with a note that said, “Mamas need new blankets, too.” Now your kids share it on Saturday morning during cartoons while you’re making pancakes in the kitchen.
