I love Christmas.
Like, love love Christmas.
Most Americans wait until after Thanksgiving to put up their Christmas decorations, but not me. Mine go up the day after Halloween.
Something about this woman’s smile is infectious. It almost pulls a smile of my own out, but I stifle the urge and school my features.
I quickly add myself as a contact and text myself so his number will be in my phone. When I hand it back to him, he glances at the screen.
“Mrs. Claus?” he says in a wry voice.
I laugh. “Well, that’s why you want to hire me, isn’t it? I love Christmas and you’re hoping for a miracle?”
He chuckles and shakes his head.
I bring my hand to my chest in mock surprise. “Did you just make a joke? I didn’t think you were capable.”
He rolls his eyes, and without another word, I turn and walk over to the counter to order his Americano and my caramel macchiato.
My heart has been kick-started, it just has nothing to do with Christmas.
