It’s so hard to believe it’s already December. I’ve been trying really hard not to be a grinch this year and it’s mostly working. We’ve decorated around the apartment spectacularly–it’s so much fun to walk in and be greeting with our festive entrance. We also went and picked out our tree, which is where I figured out what our momento for our first Christmas together should be. We saved the cutting at the base of our tree, and I’m going to turn it into an ornament.
Picking out our tree was fun, and a very couple-practice-y moment. David didn’t want a big tree, and I wanted one that was as tall as him. He’s 6’3′ so it doesn’t seem unreasonable. He thought that might be too tall so I suggested one not shorter than me, but not taller than him. The one we found was perfect! (Although when all was said and done, it was a little shorter than me. By maybe half an inch)
Kels and Kim joined us for the decorating of the tree as part of our third annual Orphan Christmas. It was a ton of fun, mostly just to get together with those ladies. My friends are all so spread out that it’s hard to figure out schedules and timing to actually see them!
We ended the day by working on our christmas cards and we have half of them completely done! I started the process thinking that 16 cards was enough, but boy was I wrong. I’m going to double the amount and hope that no hurt feelings happen along the way. I’m super excited about them and completely in love. I’ll be sure to send one through a blog post soon to make sure you guys all get a peek, too!
I hope everyone else had a nice Saturday, whether you had it off or not! Any special holiday activities planned to get in the seasonal mood?
