It was the time of the year where everything has been just perfect and it was just truly amazing. Winter was finally here and December was here and Christmas was right around the corner. I couldn’t believe how fast this year had gone by but it has flown by, guess that’s what happens when you’re spending it with the right one. It was like I was just standing still with him and everything was rushing by us, just lost in each others eyes. What would happen if we looked up? Would things stop and fall apart?
We didn’t want to find out, I loved being in love and he was just the most imperfect person that I had ever met. His hair, his smile, his eyes everything about him I loved. “Putting up the tree?” he asked. “Yea we are putting the tree up” I said. He put the tree up as I started to put the lights on, it seemed like he just wanted to watch me do whatever I wanted to the tree. “Are you going to help?” I asked. “I will once you finish the lights” he said. “Uh huh sure” I said. He got up and put his arms around my waist as he rested his head on my shoulder. “I want you to do this exactly the way you want it to be” he said into my ear. “This is your Christmas as well baby” I said. “I know but whatever you want is fine with me” he said. “Really?” I asked. “Yes I want to see you smile” he said. I smiled as I finished putting the lights on this was the first Christmas that I could actually have a big tree and no one would tell me no. “It’s beautiful” he said. “Thank you just got to decorate it” I said. By the time I finished the tree I was tired but he was ready with hot cocoa and a blanket so we could snuggle by the fireplace. “What time is it?” I asked. “Around 7pm” he said. “Not too bad for a big tree like that” I said. I lay back in his arms as we watched the fire, nothing could be any better than what I had right now. “This will be an amazing Christmas” he said. “Why” I asked. “Because I’m spending it with you” he said. “Aw that’s sweet babe” I said. “i have a surprise for you tomorrow” he said. “Really?” I said. “Yea I do” he said with a smirk. I hated when he did this but I knew that I could wait and it would be something amazing. This was our first Christmas together and it was already amazing I don’t know how much more he could make it more special.
-The Next Day-
Waking up was so easy this morning because I was so excited for his surprise, I needed to prepare myself because it could come at any moment. I went through my day on the look out for anything new but nothing really happened. He came around the time I was getting ready for dinner, I was already ready when he grabbed my hand. “Come with me” he said. I agreed and just went with him, he was taking me around town and I couldn’t figure out why. “Remember this?” he said as he showed me the cafe. “Yea its where we meet at” I said. “Yea it is the first time I saw you” he said. “Yea love at first sight” I said with a smile. He took me to the park and went actually where we had our first kiss. “Remember this?” he asked. “Yea I do” I said. “Good because the first time our lips meet” he said. We went around town as he pointed out where we had our first everything then he took me somewhere I never had been before. “What is this?” I asked. “You will see” he said. We walked down towards the lake and the path was light up with candles and I just followed him. We went out onto the lake as we looked out towards the water. “This is beautiful” I said. “Yes it is, Happy one year anniversary” he said. “You remembered?” I asked. “Of course I remember when this beautiful girl came into my life I couldn’t forget” he said. “Baby that’s so sweet” I said. “I got you this” he said as he took a deep breath in handing me a ring box. “W-what is this?” I asked. “It’s not an engagement ring, it’s a promise ring” he said. I opened the box and took the ring out handing it to him wondering what he was promising. “What are you promising?” I asked. “i promise to love you, take care of you, never hurt you and I promise one day ill replace with this ring with a wedding ring” he said. He slides the ring on my hand and I kissed him softly, I knew he could keep that promise and I never questioned it. That year was the most amazing year of my life and I knew from this day forward it would just an amazing ride as we continue to remain together.
