I know, I know, I’m a day late. I meant to post this yesterday but I decided my time was better spent with family, my love and eating copious amounts of treats left by Santa himself.
Yesterday morning as breakfast was baking in the oven, we opened our presents while Christmas movies played in the background. And I have to admit, I got a little spoiled this year. Omar tricked me for weeks about my present…he even wrapped the present within present. After making my way through the layers, hidden within a box filled with chocolates and piles of tinsel, was the real present. It was a locket. It has a Claddagh symbol on the front (which means friendship, loyalty and love) and he even put a photo of the two of us inside. I exploded into tears, he couldn’t have got me a more thoughtful gift. I never want to take it off. I have had a Claddagh ring since my late teens and it has never left my hand since; so for him to get me a gift with so much meaning meant so much to me.
We spent the night watching even more Christmas movies, eating even more food and playing Mario Run (he bought me the full version after presents). I have never had a more fun Christmas, and I’m sure Omar would say the same (even though it was his first). I think I might have set his expectations up too high for next year 😉
Merry Christmas everyone! I hope your Christmas was just as special.
