So let me tell you, this was the BEST CHRISTMAS EVER! Chris made Christmas...epic.
The night before we went to my mom's and spent time with family. Barely sleeping, like always for me. He was so sweet though. Then I woke up and was amazed by presents. And Chris kept pulling them out! practically from thin air! Then church was fabulous. Then more time with family, doing a Christmas puzzle. Then after family had left my mom's, we packed up and went home. When we arrived, the apt (which I had been bummed I hadn't been able to clean for christmas) was cleaned! And chris had put even more presents under the tree! And we got to have Christmas just the two of us.
Remember those feelings of wonder you have as a kid? Where you feel like you got everything you asked for and more? Where Santa is the coolest guy in the whole world? Christmas feels warmer than any hug and happier than...anything else? This year with Chris... it felt like that again. Leading up to Christmas was super hard, transitions have never been smooth for me. I'm usually not a fan of change. I like traditions! So it really hadn't felt like a very good Christmas. No snow didn't help. Then, Christmas day... was more magical and memorable, and...perfect than it's been since I was a kid. Chris... I don't even know how to describe it... but he makes me feel more alive than I could feel without him. He IS my life at this point. I can't imagine life without him... it'd be too...dark to handle...
Anyways... Chris made Christmas super fantastic. I mean, I tried to make it great for him, but I'm a sucky gift giver. I'm good at decorating, music, food, and stockings stuff. But Chris... he puts the love and joy into Christmas to make presents and the mood all combine to magic.
So yeah. Best Christmas ever!
