Christmas (literally) on the Road!
i happen to love christmas. a lot. i don’t allow myself the indulgence until december 1 because i don’t want to get sick of it. yes, it’s possible to tire of christmas songs and i found this out when i was working a very stressful job a few years back. i found a radio station that started playing the jolly songs in the beginning of november so i listened to it to calm my nerves and bring me joy. i can report that they lost their magic and i turned slightly “Grinch-esque” by the end of the season.
since we are on the road right up until christmas and then we will be packing up our lives to move back to portland, i have been a little bit of a debbie-downer feeling like it won’t really be the greatest christmas this year. thankfully the hotels where we are staying are so far all decked out (please start humming “deck the halls” after reading that like i did) but it’s still not the same.
as we headed out to get on the road, i glanced at what i thought was our car but saw a little santa window cling and thought “awww that’s super cute! i wish that was our car!” and then…IT WAS.
the sweetest husband in all the land went to a nearby store and brought christmas to me!! yes, i started crying as i was hugging him and he whispered “christmas will always be wherever we are together.” what a freakin’ sap…i love it and him immensely.
have you ever had a christmas tree waiting on the center console for you?! now i can say i have. he also got me a sweet holiday card, candy canes full of M&Ms, little chocolate santas, garland decorating the dashboard and a little snowman ornament to hang from the mirror!
i am honestly still in shock. this is a surprise i can totally get behind. what a kind and thoughtful person i’ve found myself to be in love with.
and oh boy does it make me happy.
1) real tree or artificial? (i’m usually all about real but it’d be too tricky on the road)
2) favorite holiday song to hear or sing to?
3) when’s the last time you did something extra sweet to your sweetie?
