Celebrating

Four years ago today, Nik surprised me with a ring and a question.

I’m so glad he did!

Part of the evening was getting and decorating a Christmas tree for Nik’s (now our) house.  The tree branches didn’t cooperate though so we watched The Office instead.*  We ended up calling this our love tree because it stayed looking beautiful until we took it down in March even though we’d stopped watering it long before.

I love you Nik!  This girl is glad you asked me to marry you too.

*Fairly ironic that TV has a part in our engagement story because we now have banished our TV to the basement and never watch it.  We did love The Office though!

    Ezra said “mama, that’s your Eliana!” I told him it was his Eliana too, and he buried his face in my shoulder and smiled.

    Do you get your Christmas tree on this day every year in rememberance?!

    We talked about having that be our tradition but especially when we go to AK for Christmas, that shortens how long we can have the tree up. So we got it earlier this year. But we’re planning on having some sort of Christmas/engagement celebration every year on the 8th!
