New Christmas Traditions

This will be mine and Derek's seventh Christmas to spend together, but our first living together! It's hard to believe we moved in together four months ago. It's fun to look forward to new traditions now that we are together more than ever. We put up our little fake Christmas tree (our building doesn't allow real ones) and decorated our tree with the few ornaments that we have!   

Derek surprised me with a "Our First Christmas Together" ornament! And in Derek fashion, he just scribbled our names and date on the back with a sharpie. I'm looking forward to picking up more ornaments here and there for our tree for future Christmas's together. 

I'm so excited for Christmas Eve tomorrow! We will be continuing our Christmas Eve traditions that we have had since our first Christmas together which include opening each other's presents and baking cookies. What does your Christmas Eve look like?


  1. Merry Christmas! Lovely little tree! We don't have room for one in our apartment but I got a mini-table top tree which will do :) on Christmas Eve we go to services with my family and then to a Chinese restaurant for dinner! I also bake cookies with my mom :)

    Got to love a fresh batch of cookies on Christmas Eve!
