Kevin and my first wedding present was thoughtfully shipped to his house–our future home. We were meeting for a date the night it arrived (a friend’s wedding, a month before our own), so he brought the present to our date and we opened it together in the car. We were beyond thrilled at getting an actual wedding present! It meant we were getting married! And soon!
It was a beautiful Waterford crystal Christmas tree ornament “Our First Christmas 2002”.
It’s lost. We have no idea what happened to it. We kind of knew it was misplaced early on, but we didn’t actually put up a Christmas tree until 2005, when we realized it was really lost.
And that just bothers me.
