Christmas Surprise #sol21

On Christmas morning, we were gathered in the living room after our traditional breakfast. Mom and I had handed out the gifts and I had my camera ready to record everything. I usually like to hold off on opening my gifts because I love to take pictures of everyone as they open their gifts.

Mike pointed out one gift box that he wanted me to start with. It wasn’t a large box, but it wasn’t a small box either. I took time to admire his wrapping job—-he wraps much better than I ever will!

I opened the box to find another box. Then, when I opened that box, there was another box! After four boxes, I discovered a small box tied with a ribbon. I opened that box and there a diamond ring was nestled. I stared at the ring for a moment, processing, before Mike said words that brought tears to my eyes. It was a beautiful Christmas surprise and I can’t wait to continue our journey together!
