I went to a Christmas party with my boyfriend and had a wonderful time. It was nice to be in a social situation as a couple with him. Usually, I feel guarded with him if we're in a remotely public place, because there is always the chance that I will have to explain myself if the wrong person should see us (work, family). It was just really, really relaxing and nice. I love my boyfriend's friends, and I'm really thankful that my husband allows me to have this.
