|We're going to get a tree tomorrow. We really don't have any ornaments so for now we're just gonna buy a box of balls or something. Good enough, right?
Plus multi-colored twinkle lights, glorious and tacky.
Last Christmas I went home and Mark went to visit his family in Florida. Early on Christmas eve I realized I missed Mark too much and I managed to fly down to Florida and surprise him (his brother's fiance helped me). It was such a great night! I met so many of his friends from home for the first time... we all went to this bar and stayed there late, just hanging out. Everyone was so nice.
The only thing was at the bar I was so paranoid that someone was going to say "So, when are you two going to tie the knot?" or something awkward like that. And at that point we had never ever discussed marriage. Fortunately, it didn't happen, but I realized that I had to bring it up at some point, especially because we were living together. Natural progression, right?
We spent Christmas with his family in Florida then we flew home... there was a tree up in the house, all decorated... as a surprise. He'd done it after I flew home. And for my gift he'd had someone take pictures from my hometown. They were framed and hanging in the hallway. Beautiful professional photography. It meant so much to me because he knew I was getting homesick. So yes, I cried. I was so happy that day.
It's not the same in Arizona. Only the decorations give it away. No scarves or snowflakes, no ice skating or frosty air. Oh well.

|Thats what christmas is like in australia. In fact, its the heat that makes it christmas
Don't worry too much about marriage. If its going to happen and its a natural progression, it should be stress free. I'd say enjoy what you have now if it makes you happy. If you want something more, wait and see
