But no one ever asked us to discuss our taste in Christmas decorations.
And alas, we never really thought to talk about it.
Until we went Christmas ornament shopping...
And found that Nathan likes colored lights and I like white lights.
And Nathan likes bright, big, colorful decorations and I like classy, small, delicate ones.
If only we had talked about this a year ago, we would have realized how totally incompatible we were!
Fortunately, we both excel at the art of compromise. Our Christmas tree has white lights this year, but our dinner table has a slightly cheesy, brightly-colored Christmas centerpiece. As long as I look at the tree and FavoriteBoy looks at the table, we're both very happy.
We just aren't speaking to one another.
