Amos, wearing his Christmas finery, is my trusty companion in all that I do.
It has truly been a special experience to decorate our tree in our house during this first Christmas season as a married couple. And it made it even more special that it means a lot to my husband, too! He's a pretty sentimental guy, and we're definitely enjoying this time together. I know we'll always remember sitting in our tiny first house and gazing at our tiny first tree. I wouldn't trade it!
