Merry Christmas, Darling

There are a lot of amazing things about living in Lake Tahoe- the beauty, the skiing, our awesome new home, but there are also some not so great things, like being far from family.

Christmas is the busiest time of year when you work in the ski industry, so I will be working through the weekend, which means I won’t be with my family this year.

I also won’t get to be with Luke. We decided it was important for him to get back to Indiana to see his family since we were with mine on Thanksgiving. We love our families very much and want to make this transition as easy as possible on them.

It’s hard to be without him on our first Christmas as a married couple, but I’m focusing on all the wonderful things in our lives and our bright future.

I know we’ll have plenty of special Christmas moments together in the years to come and for right now the sacrifice is worth the benefits we’re getting from our new life.

But, because I’m a sentimental person, and have a flair for the dramatic, I have been listening to this song and thinking of him.

Merry Christmas honey! St. Nick gave me the best present ever when he brought you into my life (I still don’t get how you managed to fit into my stocking, though). :)

I hope you all have a wonderful holiday! Leave me a comment and let me know who you’re thankful for this Christmas.
