This is a big deal, people. A big freakin' deal. And frankly, if anyone would like to judge me for being concerned by this news in world torn by war, injustice, famine...go ahead. But tonight, I am mourning the discontinuation of the best thing that happened to me as a child (well, top ten, at least).
Samantha Pennington, the doll that inspired me to pray for the repopularization of daily formal wear, is being laid to rest this Christmas. Pleasant Company is letting her go. After twenty years of being an AMERICAN GIRL DOLL. I'm just, shocked.
Too dramatic? Ask anyone who had one of these dollies and you will reconsider.
