there’s a house that i’ve loved each year at christmas time. they’ve always put up an enormous amount of decorations and it’s been a joy of mine to go by each year and see them. it’s been a few years since i’ve gone due to whatever reasons i had at the time, so i don’t know what they’ve been up to recently.
last night, tony took me to see his favorite house for christmas, and i was completely shocked – it was the same people, they just moved to a different house! i’m sure you’re wondering how i could possibly know that, but several decorations were the exact same, they had a little food donation bin, and i would recognize that animatronic santa anywhere! i was so elated. i pulled up a video of their old house from a few years back to show him it was the same people, and he completely agreed. and while i was preparing to do a video again this year of my favorite house in its new spot, tony surprised me.
it was just an ordinary day, doing ordinary things; christmas shopping, dinner with family, naps, and looking at christmas decorations on the way home. it was just ordinary, and then it became extraordinary. and now i get to say i’m going to marry my best friend.
