-When my future husband had hair the same length as mine
-When we decorated his first tree as an adult living on his own
-When the tree topper of choice (for him) was a bird feather
-When I was still trying to hook this guy for good, so I didn't complain about the feather
-When we were both still poor college students
-When we were 20 and 21 in 2007,
We celebrated our first Christmas together.
There was a lot of love and laughter to be had that night.
I remember feeling so grown up...celebrating my first Christmas with this amazing boyfriend.
We exchanged presents and kisses.
Now five years later, we're coming upon yet another Christmas celebration.
I cannot believe I'm still lucky enough to celebrate it with my most favorite person.
The tree is decorated (with an actual star, since I now feel comfortable to speak my mind about dumb decorating ideas.)
We'll exchange presents and kisses.
And it will be amazing.
