Christmas will always be special for me. Mr and I will be spending our fifth Christmas together this year, that is a blessing on its own. We met in November of 2011 and I definitely felt an instant connection with him, so much so that I invited him to join me and my family over Christmas weekend.
This was no easy feat and looking back this could have been such a huge disaster. My parents rented a holiday home in the seaside town of Hermanus for Christmas weekend. My family members from both sides were there. We were clearly very into each other, because I had never allowed a boyfriend to meet all those family members before. He must have been into me to accept such an invitation from a relative stranger and still stick around after meeting my family. 🙂
The weekend went off without a hitch and he was able to get a front and centre view of my family. Everyone behaved themselves and it has become a sweet memory for us ever since.
