The Best Christmas Present

I’ve neglected you this holiday season and I am sorry. This is the busiest December I have ever experienced but in such a good way. I have been to Williamsburg, I have celebrated my best friend getting married, and I’ve been up to my elbows in Christmas movies, cookies, and parties with dear friends. I will have some good stuff for you in the new year and maybe I can get my act together here.

I was at a Christmas party the other night, playing white elephant. One gal suggested that before you pick your gift, you should say what your favorite or least favorite Christmas gift has been. I kind of feel like the good gifts get lost in the not-so-good gift’s memory. At least for me, it’s easier to remember the gifts I wasn’t too keen on than the ones I loved. I guess that’s a good sign of being blessed with great gifts! As I was awaiting my turn to pick my gift, I was nervously trying to think of any gift I have gotten in past Christmases. I looked down at my hands and remembered! Here is my favorite Christmas memory/gift.

It was 2 days before Christmas 5 years ago (still with me?). I had just graduated college, although due to a snow storm, the ceremony was cancelled and broke my heart. Chris and I had planned to visit New York City in honor of me attaining a Bachelor’s degree. Let’s not mention that around this time, I was a crazy girlfriend, who was desperately looking for a ring on her finger. Poor Chris! Anyways, we took a train to the Big Apple and our first stop was the Empire State Building. Chris is deathly afraid of heights so I knew this was going to be a challenge. He barely made it out of the elevator that takes you up 100 floors in less than a couple of minutes. Well, we go outside to check out the view and the next thing that happened was totally unexpected. I love this memory of us and the best part is, we got it all on film thanks to Chris’s dear friend. I am including the link to watch the video of my favorite Christmas memory. Have a very Merry Christmas, friends! What is your favorite Christmas memory?
