The Holiday

Happy Tuesday Beautiful People! Hope the start of your week went off without a hitch. It is a chilly day here in Limoges and I am throughly enjoying my coffee this morning. I am excited because today Kyle and I will do some Christmas shopping and we will pick out our Christmas tree. I am hoping we don't have any problems like "The Crash of 2011", I will keep my fingers crossed.

In keeping up with Christmas traditions, Kyle and I watched one of our favorite Christmas flicks last night, The Holiday. I don't know why I love this movie but I can tell you that it did solidify my love for Kyle. Join me on this little trip down memory lane.

It was back in 2008, I was in South Bend visiting Kyle at University. We were in bed, I was asleep until Kyle was nudging me to wake up, I looked at him and then my phone, which read that it was 2:00a.m., was the apartment on fire or something. Why would he wake me up when I was dreaming of sugar plum fairies or something like that. Well to my surprise, Kyle woke me up to tell me that The Holiday was on television and he wanted me to watch it with him.

I looked at him a moment more and just smiled, what 21 year old guy, college student, star of an athlete loves The Holiday? Well it happened to be the guy laying next to me and that made me fall in love with him even more. I tried my hardest to stay up to watch with him, but soon fell back asleep.

A few weeks later on Christmas, my mother gave Kyle a gift, a copy of The Holiday on DVD so we could watch it whenever we wanted to. Now it has become a tradition not to watch in until after Thanksgiving, it has become one of my favorite things to do during the holiday season. I love to curl up next to my fiancé and watch a movie that takes me back to such a great memory.
