The boy and I were still in our tiny, one room, bachelor apartment this time last year, so there wasn’t much space for holiday decorations (see photo.) But we made the most of what we had and it was truly one of the best Christmases of my life.
Since it was our first Christmas together as husband and wife, we wanted to make it extra special. So we decided to celebrate all the 12 Days of Christmas! You know, like the song? “On the 1st day of Christmas my true love gave to me a partridge in a pear tree,” and so on.
I basically gave the boy twelve presents (we gave each other the 1st gifts on Christmas Eve and then continued giving each other one gift a day for the next 11 days.) I came up with some great gifts, but the boy had me beat. He was so clever and cute with his gift giving. Here’s the rundown of what he gave me (try reading it in tune to the song):
12 Husch Wine Bottles (it was the wine club membership from my favorite winery we visited on our honeymoon)
11 Vinyl Records
10 Dollar Bi-lls
9 Teen Vogue Issues
8 Make-up Brushes
7 (th) Cosby Season
6 Pointe Ma-ga-zines
5 Gold Chicks (actually this was a gift he made in my honor, Purchasing a dozen chicks to give to HIV infected families in Poverty stricken countries.)
4 Streatfield Books
3 Mixy (CD) Mixes
2 Lovely Earrings
And a handbag just for me!
Not bad huh? I am one lucky lady to have the boy in my life!
