For her birthday, she was happy to receive her apron. The thank you note she sent is a keeper:
"Thank you for my apron. I am going to keep it. Sometime make me a chef hat."
So here is the chef hat! If everyone was as excited about simple little gifts like a chef hat and apron, the world would be a better place, and giving gifts would happen all year round at random. To bad there isn't more time in the day to spearhead that initiative. Maybe later.
