Gotta say it’s a bit depressing celebrating Christmas out here with no friends or family. There are no presents under the tree for us to open tomorrow, there aren’t any presents for us to give and there isn’t any family for us to visit. That being said, I do have Sydney and she is my family now and her love is the greatest gift of all.
I know what some of my friends will be thinking after reading this. So here’s some self deprecation.
Anyways Merry Christmas everyone.
As Wally said it is weird that it is Christmas Eve and I am not bouncing off the walls waiting to open presents that I have already guessed (I have a gift of knowing exactly what is in each box. It drives Wally crazy). Anyways tomorrow is Christmas and I miss home a little. It is crazy to think that 2016 is a week away and it feels like we just got to China even though it has been over 2 months.
I spoke a little with Bianca today and we did some planning. Our little spreadsheet looks so good right now and I am just getting more and more excited. I had today off and unfortunately Wally had to go to work so I stayed home and relaxed.
Christmas Eve dinner consisted of salami, brie, butter, French bread, and coke, oh and a salad. It was perfect for us. Wally brought home some cookies that he got as a gift and they were pretty good and a nice way to cap off dinner. Not your traditional Christmas Eve but it was unconventional like our whole relationship has been. I have my family and for our first Christmas as a married couple I would not have it any other way. It is another memory that we will look back on and laugh.
I am lucky to be spending Christmas on a crazy adventure with Wally.
To everyone back home Merry Christmas Eve and I hope Santa brings you lots of presents tonight. XO
