Our First Christmas

This will be our ninth Christmas as a married couple. Nine Christmases as "us".

And yet it's our first.

Our first happy Christmas. The first Christmas where I will look into his eyes and know, really know that he loves me. The first Christmas where I will listen to him read the story of Christ's birth and know that it means something more than just tradition to him. The first Christmas where we will stroll hand in hand among thousands of lights and it won't feel fake and contrived. The first Christmas where I will lay in his arms and feel safe and secure.

Our ninth Christmas, yet our first.

I can't wait for our second. And our third.
