I am not a fan of the cold, and thus winter is not my favorite season. The big exception to this though is the fact that Christmas falls during this time and I love the Christmas season. A big reason why I love Christmas is the tree. I have to admit that in years past I have not been the most excited person about decorating the Christmas tree, because we have so many ornaments that it it seemed to take forever to put them all on. This year though I was struck by all the memories that came flooding back with each ornament we added to the tree.
We have been celebrating Christmas with decorating trees together since 1999, and have collected a wide range of ornaments in that time. Some we have purchased, others gifted and many family hand-me-downs.
