Saving it until marriage…

Posted on December 10, 2008. Filed under: dreaming | Tags: |


Saving the holiday decorating, that is.  After Miss Powder Puff’s post about giving Christmas decorations as wedding gifts (fabulous idea, PP!), and my post mentioning “pre-nesting” as a downside of living together, I decided that we’ll save at least a few traditions for our year as newlyweds.  The mister agreed!  {I’m guessing that part of his ready agreement has to do with suddenly realizing how much time and effort goes into getting a tree, not to mention the decisions — fake or real, cut or live, themes or not, star or angel, breakable ornaments or not, etc, etc!}

I love getting ready for Christmas.  I like to make hot chocolate, put something yummy in the oven for dinner, play holiday tunes (my favorite playlists all come from Starbucks!), and wrestle with the tree.  It’ll be fun to talk with each other about holiday memories and crazy family and traditions we’d like to have with our new family, so we’re going to wait until after we’re married.  Oh, and then we can have a tree trimming party!!

What newlywed traditions (or activities) are you looking forward to or saving for after the big day?

    I’ve been there, done that, got the t-shirt (and divorce papers) to prove it. Here I am again, pledging my life to my (new) love with eyes wide open (and heart racing) knowing full well how emotionally traumatic this can end… and doing it anyway.
