Another Christmas on the books. It was low key, relaxing, and nearly perfect. I think any single girl can relate to how it feels to spend holidays with family when you are the only one who is "single". I'm not necessarily single, but I was solo for the holidays as Hunk was back home with his family. Having only been together for a month, there was no expectation for spending the holiday together. But I think we both missed having the other around. We talked plenty of times though, and even had a FaceTime date or two, which was fun.
Santa was more than good to me, and my family got me some great things as well. My favorite gift was the nice watch that my parents got for me. It has been years since I've worn a watch, and this one is just beautiful. I also got some much needed clothes, shoes, cute jewelry and some useful house things. I really am so lucky! I think everyone else liked the presents that I got for them as well. But really, the best part of Christmas was getting to see my adorable niece and the look of sheer delight when she saw what Santa brought for her. She got a "Mommy and Me" set complete with high chair, crib and stroller for her new little baby doll. She kept herself entertained almost the whole time playing with those things. It was so stinking cute!!
I celebrated Christmas with Hunk yesterday. I was so excited about the gifts that I had gotten for him, and it was so fun watching his face as he opened them. Again- first Christmas together after not dating for very long can be tricky, but I think I hit the mark. I found meaningful things without spending too much money. He got a new knit hat from Krochet Kids International (a great company that helps to empower impoverished communities in Uganda), a neat wooden sign with hooks to hang his marathon medals, and a set of gorgeous (but still masculine) sushi dishes in his favorite colors- blue and brown. He did just as well for me- I got a mug and bag of coffee from where we had our first date, a book that we have talked about The Art of Racing in the Rain, a really cool poster for my office, and then my favorite, a personalized #9 Saints jersey that says "Ms. Breesy" on the back. I freaking love it!!! Now I just hope the Saints can keep it together through play-offs so that I can wear it for the Superbowl.
Needless to say, things with Hunk are spectacular. One last vomit inducing example of a text message he sent me (sorry mom), but this was such a sweet thing to read on Christmas morning:
We are very blessed to have each other. I think we both know how lucky we are to have found one another. Every step has been pretty amazing, and I can't wait to see where it leads us.
I think that sums up how things have been with him...amazing. It's hard to believe that it has only been one month. That's just crazy. But a great month it has been, and I'm equally excited to see where it leads us. It was a very Merry Christmas indeed.
