I’m married and have a five year old but I can remember when I first started dating my boyfriend, now husband, as though it was yesterday. It was fall and I was a full-time college student experiencing the thrills and chills of freshmen year. I didn’t pick up 15 extra pounds, I swear! 😉 In addition to being a full-time student that was too new to the system to know that you should not schedule classes five days a week when you don’t live on campus, I also worked full-time and volunteered. I have no idea how I was able to fit a boyfriend into that schedule but at the time it really did not seem difficult. I think we are more ambitious when we are younger. Needless to say, I was being pulled every which way and with only 24 hours in the day something had to suffer and normally that was my make-up.
Now, let me start by saying that I am not what I would call a “girlie girl.” I’m soft and feminine but doing hair, makeup, and matching cute outfits has never been my strong suit; thank God for sisters! That being said, along the way I did learn that there are a few essentials that every woman must have and must use daily. Eyeliner, mascaras, and something to make our lips look and feel kissably (is that a word?) soft.
As I mentioned, we started dating in the fall, at the end of October to be exact, and that meant the holidays were quickly approaching. I have always been a kid at heart so I try to take advantage of anything festive, holly, and jolly during the holiday season. We are talking Christmas music piped into my car and house in November, Christmas movies before Thanksgiving, hot cocoa galore, Christmas socks, and everything FLAVORED!!!
Now, my boyfriend, being the awesome guy that he is, quickly came to realize that I had little time and wore little makeup but he understood the importance of keeping my lips soft and kissable. About a month into our relationship he arrived to pick me up for a date and he brought with him a little, shiny red gift bag. It was that day that he definitely confirmed he paid attention when he gave me holiday scented and FLAVORED (squee) ChapStick®! Hmm, maybe he just wanted to be cute and keep my lips mistletoe ready … who knows.
Fourteen years into our relationship and a five year old later, I am still in love with my husband and holiday ChapStick®! I think I found a keeper in both. 😉
