Overall, I think people handled the news of my going to Washington with Nathan for Thanksgiving well. My mom was a little saddened and shocked by the news, which I’d sort of expected. Still, she’s known for months that I wouldn’t be able to make it home; her and Dad even planned a trip to go visit some family members they rarely get to see. Still, I think it was a little surprising for her to hear that I would be spending the holiday with my boyfriend and his family. Cason was just relieved to know that I wouldn’t be spending it alone.
“Are you nervous?” Allison asked, making a face at a top I held up to get her approval.

So, Claire, thank you for being there for me and I really do hope you had an AMAZING BIRTHDAY!
Now onto the one shot, let me know what you guys think. :)
Song: Merry Christmas Darling by the Carpenters

“Merry Christmas, darling; we’re apart, that’s true, but I can dream and in my dreams I’m Christmasing with you. Holidays are joyful, there’s always something new but every day’s a holiday when I’m near you.”
They say that memories can help you get through the hardest times of your life. That with the help of them you’ll never really be lonely. I’m not sure if I believe that but I know memories do help ease the pain. Love Michael, with all I have in me but I hate that’s away so much. Plus with him in Baltimore and me in New York, we can’t be that spontaneous couple that I long for us to be. Often times, one of us has to arrange a trip just to see one another.

So a bunch of you asked me to write more of Ryan and Carrie. So here is a Christmas one shot for them :) I hope you guys like it! Let me know what you think. Song: Christmas Time by Christina Aguilera

“When I was young every Christmas Eve I could not sleep; trying to catch that old St. Nick leaving presents under my tree. And every year I’d fall asleep laying in my bed, dreaming of a million sugarplums dancing in my head. Oh, how much joy it brings to see the ones you love. This year’s gonna be the best Christmas because there’ll be family and Christmas cheer; peace and goodwill to all men. Everybody is home. Sneaking a kiss under the mistletoe, I want a white Christmas so let it snow. Everybody is home for Christmas.”
Ryan and Carrie Lochte were both fast asleep, wrapped in each other’s arms and kept warm by the blanket covering them. Outside, the warm Florida sun was ascending into the sky, spreading warmth and brightness to the world below. Down the hall three year old Sophie Lochte was being tugged along behind her older brother, six year old Robbie; both of them had bright smiles on their faces as they approached the open door of their parents room.
This is a Christmas one shot for the amazingly awesome Angie :) I hope you like it, girl! <3 Let me know what you think.
Song: Winter Dreams by Kelly Clarkson

“First winter here in your arms; flames rising as we fall like stars. Making angels in the snow, warm fuzzy, frozen toes; is this a dream? Don’t wake me up; if this is love, please, let me be. Swept completely off my feet, this snow globe scene is turning me. This Christmas Eve ‘I’ became ‘we’. Don’t wake me, please, from this winter’s dream.”
Sometimes, us girls know exactly who we want to be with before the guy even really realizes we’re there. No matter what we do to try and catch his attention; sometimes we just slip past his line of sight. The trick is, that you can’t give up even if it sounds crazy. Now I’m not suggesting you sit there and pine for a guy who doesn’t even know you exist. What I’m saying is that you go out and live but don’t give up trying to catch his eye. If it’s meant to happen, it will; and you can be open to other options in that time frame too.
That’s not to say that works for everyone but it is how I got my fiancé; clearly it works for some people. So, in the interest of the season and the approaching two year anniversary of Conor and I getting together—I’m willing to share our secrets, so sit back and enjoy. It all starts on December 19, 2013…
Here’s some gifs I made from Nathan’s Art of the Cap segment. Enjoy!
She looks so pretty!
