After traveling for so many years and joining in on everyone else's christmas traditions it's really exciting to finally be building some of our own together. This year we got a real tree, a real bushy, lush green tree not one of those thin, prickly European trees that are frankly, just not ideal. So I've kept it that way with just lights, strips of white linen and a a few (new!) straw decorations from Tea Pea, although I may just get a few more... Keeping it plan now in preparation for the influx of handmade kiddie decorations that will be covering the tree next year!
My husband collects records and for a man that has such obscure taste in music he can't stomach christmas music, which is hugely disappointing. But none the less yesterday I turned it up danced around the living room getting my christmas decorating on!
