6 years later and I am still celebrating Christmas with my favorite person. Through the years every Christmas is different but here are 6 things that always remain constant through the holidays.

1. There is a such thing as "married couple" gifts.

Although socks are actually a great present for a guy because they wear so many, it's still a 'married couple' gift. My boyfriend is always asking for new Nike socks so whenever I get them for him both of our families always say "oh my gosh already buying married couple gifts for each other"

2. It is really hard to keep secrets from someone you talk to every day.

When you go Christmas shopping for your S.O. and you just buy them some perfect gifts it is really hard to keep it a secret. You are just so excited to give it to them that you want to tell them what it is but you also want to keep it a surprise!

3. Christmas is such a happy time of year with someone you love. 

It is so great to have someone you love and have been with for a while during the Christmas season. It just makes everything so special when you can shop together for each other's families and for each other. Being able to share the magic of Christmas with one another makes the season that much more special.

4. You become such a huge part of each others families. 

When the holidays roll around you are constantly spending time with each other's families around Thanksgiving and then for Christmas. Whether its baking cookies, a Christmas party, or just exchanging gifts it's so great to spend so much meaningful time with each other's families. It also is a great opportunity to give meaningful gifts to your S.O.'s family to leave a lasting and loving impression.

5. The best feeling is getting them the perfect present. 

Whenever you finally find them the perfect present it just makes the holiday so much more exciting because every day is counting down until you can give it to them and see how happy it makes them. Seeing them happy makes your heart fill with joy and it is such a great feeling.

6. You already have the best present of all.

Although cute presents and socks may be great, the best present of all is them. Having this be my 6th Christmas with my boyfriend it is beyond meaningful to still have him in my life and grow with him every year. Having them by your side through every season of the year is by far the best present anyone could ever ask for. And receiving continual unconditional love is the best thing anyone could receive.

I Almost Gave Up On Love, Until I Met The Man Of My Dreams

I almost gave up on love, but then you came into the picture.

Right before meeting you, I had already settled on the idea that I would spend the rest of my life to myself. I knew I would be alone and live life to myself, but I was not OK with that.

After being in a relationship where I knew nothing would work out, I had given up. I had given up on the idea of loving someone and receiving the same amount of love back. I remember wanting someone who was loyal. I wanted someone who could be honest with me and treat me with respect. I felt like that was impossible to find, until I found you.

When I found you, I was about to give up. I just felt like you were another guy that was going to tell me everything I wanted to hear. I thought wrong. You were the guy I dreamed of. I dreamt of a man who would make me his entire world, who would one day have me wrapped around his finger.

I dreamed of having a man who would hold doors open for me. I dreamed of the small things and little did I know I would eventually find them with you. I dreamed of a man who would appreciate me and make it known that he did. I dreamed of a man who would make sure I was happy. I found that with you.

When I was about to give up, you walked into my life with arms wide open ready to love me and fall in love with every aspect of me. The man I dreamed of for so long was finally mine and I’m so thankful my dreams finally came true.

I'm Keeping My Christmas Tree Up All Winter And There's Nothing You Can Do About It

It's the WINTER Season... ;-)

I think that my tree would not be considered Christmas-y if the ornaments are taken off and the lights are kept on. I think to just looks wintry. I am also keeping up decorations that say "let it snow", and I am keeping up any snowman without holly berries or presents in their hands.

The tree looks wintry in my opinion. It looks pretty with the lights and brings the room together. It gives off a warm ambiance, unlike that of fluorescent lighting.

I've taken all ornaments off except for gold snowflakes and I've left the silver tinsel garland on as well as the lights. It looks wintry to me still. I will probably be taking the whole tree down by the end of this month to prepare for Valentine's Day decorating. (Yes, I pretty much decorate my apartment for every holiday—sue me).

There's nothing like coming downstairs and seeing those lights sparkling.

Or coming inside from a dreary, rainy day outside and seeing them light up the room in a calm, warm, and comforting glow.

Or having a bad day, looking up, and seeing them shine.

It sort of makes me upset when I come downstairs and see that someone has unplugged them, to be honest.

I guess they don't see it as I do.

Pretty, twinkling lights forever!
