I’ve wanted an American Girl doll for years and years. I live in Chicago, where we have a store called American Girl Place, so I can go in there and see the dolls up close and in person anytime I want. I’ve been secretly going into this store and drooling over the dolls and the cute outfits. Today, I finally got one!
She’s one of the “Just Like Me” dolls, and she’s the closest one to me I’ll ever find. I brought her home with me today, and named her Riley. She wears glasses like I do, but the camera glare isn’t friendly to them. So, like me, she photographs without glasses.
I’m so excited. I haven’t bought a doll for myself in years!
