We got our tree Sunday.
Twice now as man and wife we’ve selected and transported our christmas tree. Both times the day we got our tree was really therapeutic and peaceful amid some crazy or difficult stuff going on in life.
Now it’s up and semi-decked. I like my tree decor SIMPLE. Fat vintage bulbs + a popcorn & cranberry garland. Don’t junk it up with ornaments! If you’re offended by this, don’t worry. David is right there with you. And every year we have a lively discussion on what will and will not be allowed up on our o’ tannenbaum. (Secretly I love when he is passionate about cute stuff like this.)
Now all that’s left for the season to be started is me declaring “Merry Christmas” with wide eyes and raised eyebrows to a store greeter who says “Happy Holidays” to me.
PS: I’m not cut out for advent calendars.
