So, depending on which mindset you associate with, last Christmas might have been mine and Devon’s first Christmas. But, as far as we’re concerned, this is our first Christmas.
We spent a couple hours together last year for Devon’s annual family Christmas celebration but that was it. So we don’t count that. Last year was actually the first time Devon brought a girlfriend to a a family event (ironically his brother also brought a girlfriend for the first time last year, as well), so this was a big deal to the family. I was nervous because it was such a big deal. I mean, I’d met his mom many times over the years prior, his brother, a couple cousins; but Gramma and Grandpa were making me nervous.
A year later I’m coming back (to Grammas house, no less) so clearly I didn’t do too bad there. She also keeps calling me his fiancée, so really must have been okay.
But, I digress.
As far as either of us is concerned, this year is our first Christmas. We get to start some new traditions and continue some old. Best part is we get to be together for all of it, which is what we both wanted most last year.
I hope everyone has a great holiday. 🙂
