Welcome to day two of Blogmas!
So, who loves surprises? I know I do. The good kind anyway, not the bad.
All year I have been bouncing on the balls of my feet, knowing that In December 2015, I would be travelling home for three whole weeks to spend Christmas with my family in Wales. Since last christmas, a lot of things have changed in my life, the main thing being that I met my wonderful boyfriend, Chad.
I’ve had a tough couple of months, with being sick, stress at work and losing someone very dear to me back home. So as you can imagine, going home to Wales for the holiday is like the light at the end of one very loooong tunnel. Just when I thought I couldn’t get anymore excited, Chad gave me the best Christmas gift I could possibly have ever hoped for.
He’s coming to Wales for the holidays.
Not only did most of our friends know, but both of our families too, and everyone played along wonderfully. I honestly had no idea! Of course I had a big part of me that was secretly hoping he would surprise me and come, but I was deterred time and time again.
Back in spring, I had asked if he wanted to come to Wales with me for Christmas, and was sad when he told me he had to go back to Canada to see his own family, as they were missing him. Despite understanding 100%, I was was not looking forward to being thousands of miles apart for three whole weeks. But not anymore!
Last Saturday, when we were sitting at the sea side park; a place that has been the focal point of many of our big conversations and decisions, he revealed his big secret. I cried a little when I found out and hugged and kissed him, something that was probably a little racy by elder Nagasaki residents standards. It only hit me, however, when we were walking back when I stopped suddenly and started crying my eyes out, repeating ‘you’re coming to Wales!’ over and over into my scarf.
I’m not only so grateful to him and my family and friends, but to his family too. They kept the surprise going and supported Chad in his decision even though I’m sure they would love to have him home for the holidays. I honestly cannot express how happy,grateful and overwhelmed I am.
Needles to say I am now unbearably excited for Christmas!
I hope all you wonderful people reading my blog get a wonderful surprise too this Christmas❤︎
