Trim the Tree

Every year Jon and I look forward to getting a Christmas tree.  We go all out with the real deal, no fake stuff for us.  We stop at numerous tree stands to check out what they have before we make our decision.  Jon is more particular about the tree than I am, but I do appreciate a pretty tree.  This year we decided to buy a Noble Fir and we actually found the prettiest one at Home Depot.   I was so excited about it!  We loaded it up and headed home.  Once we got home I realized that the ornaments we had were not going to be sufficient, so I headed to Hobby Lobby and racked up on the 50% off Christmas ornaments sale they were having.  Saturday night Jon and I went to work on decorating the tree.  He is always in charge of putting the lights on it, because he does a fantastic job!  I usually put most of the ornaments on, and he tops it off with the star.  It is something we really enjoy doing together, and I hope that we are able to continue on with this tradition every year!

This morning when I got home from work the first thing I smelled was the aroma of fresh Christmas tree, and it definitely made me feel all warm and giddy inside.  I guess slowly but surely I will get in the Christmas spirit this year! I am looking forward to the next couple of days off so that I can curl up on the couch, with the Christmas tree glowing, maybe a fire burning, possibly a glass of wine in hand, and my husband right next to me!! :)
