Dearest,

You wake up on Christmas morning while the stars are still awake. Your eyes still filled with sleep from the wonderful dream you were dreaming. You look at your window to see if any snow has fallen.

We are not ashamed to say that we are very sentimental persons and are really attached to all these memories. Continue reading
