The First Christmas Apart

a Victoria Lousalot on Dec 14, 2007 at 6:03PM

"We will be celebrating the holidays apart this year. It is going to be interesting to see how it goes, because since we've been a couple we've always found a way to be together on Christmas. I know I will be OK since I will be with family, but I don't feel right celebrating and being happy when I know the situation he is in. I plan on doing my best to make his Christmas a good one by sending him gifts. I'm also hoping we'll be able to use the webcam—so he can see the tree and decorations here, and watch me open presents."—cl-amermae
