All the small things

- Being woken up by him whispering "hello, beautiful" and a kiss that curls your toes instead of the alarm clock.

- Cinnamon rolls and coffee cuddled under the warmth of the down comforter.

- Having the entire downstairs decorated in sparkling white lights and garland.

- Finding out that the one place in the house the tree will actually fit allows it to be seen from all angles outside, and that its reflection in the china cabinet makes it visible in the entire downstairs.

- Finding your box of special Waterford ornaments were miraculously not destroyed in the move (His mother buys me one every year as part of my Christnakkah presents).

- Sex so mind numbingly fantastic that the entire neighborhood knows what you did this morning without a single thought as to ovulation, follicles, and endometrial thickness.

- Finding that the OHSS swelling is finally down enough that you are able to fit back into your regular clothes.

- A husband that will not only go shopping with you - but when you're in the dressing room for the upteenth time, he is combing the racks looking for more clothes for you to try on, and for once actually isn't complaining about how long you're taking.

- The scent of laundry softener filtering up through the basement, and realizing you weren't the one who put the laundry in the wash.

- Finding out that the jeans you are trying on are a size smaller than you expected, and they're on sale, and they look good.

- Laughing so hard your sides hurt.

- A cashmere sweater and muffler.

- Snow flurries.

- Compliments on your cooking and event planning in a public forum by someone you respect.

- Finding that the first present under the tree is for you.

- Coming in from the cold and having the cat who absolutely never pays attention to you jump up in your lap and fall asleep purring.

- Curling up in one of his sweaters.

- Great Belgian ales- Delirium Noel and Dubbel in heavy crystal glasses.

- Knowing that tomorrow I'll wake up next to him all over again.
