My favorite part of the holidays is all the amazing traditions families have. My husband and I got married fast. We had a whirlwind courtship and were married in under a year. Yes, we're those people. So our first Christmas together we were married. And had a tree of our very own. With absolutely no ornaments. So we started our own tradition. Each Christmas, including that one, we bought each other an ornament that we knew would be special to the other person. When we had our kids that tradition grew to include them with the thought that when our kiddos left home, they would take their ornaments with them and would never have a bare tree in their homes. Now our tree almost has too many ornaments. But here are my top five:
It may not be designer and the lights might not match the ornaments but every inch of our tree reflects us. And I love it. What about you? Do you have a tradition that makes you all warm and fuzzy inside? I'd love to hear about it. Happy Holidays from all of us to all of you!
