This is where we are spending Christmas. Doing our favorite things, together as our own family of two.
Exploring a new place. Learning about a culture, eating amazing local food, and meeting people. Sharing more of our lives with each other and giving each other the gift of memories. This is the tradition we are building together.
What traditions mean Christmas to you? For me, it was always harp music and stockings filled to bursting and my Dad. My Dad is Christmas to me. And even now that I am older and have my own family, my Dad is still Christmas. So it is remembering what feelings he brings to the holiday. What warmth and life and spectacle, so that I might do the same for Terrence. That I might bring the holiday to life for him and to all that I meet, just as my father did for me.
