I adore Ruthie. I originally fell for her when on a Gilmore Girls kick and in certain pictures she looked an awful lot like a dollified Lauren Graham. I ordered her and waited (she was my first doll in 12 years or something) impatiently. I read her book and I fell head over heels. Ruthie is my everything will be okay doll. Having her around makes things better even when they are absolutely, positively awful.
