...how lovely are your branches.
I know...I'm sorry. It is safe to say I wasn't very good at juggling things the past two weeks. Projects and holiday work hours and then finals this week---now I can breathe and blog again.
In the midst of craziness, I took a much needed break this past weekend and put up my tinsel tree. I always delight in popping it up and decorating it differently than previous years. Once I strung the lights (twice, thanks to a faulty set I neglected to check), and placed the topped (an adorable Santa figure holding shiny presents), I stepped back to admire the little beauty.
All i can think when I look at my tree is, "Wow, my ornaments are eclectic." I've been collecting ornaments (thanks to my mom) ever since my very first Christmas. And it's a bit of a tradition for my sister and I to get the same or similar ornaments each year. 2011 was perfect for adding a banana into the mix. Over the years, I've acquired a pickle, a wooden painted teddy bear dated 1991, The Lollipop Guild from Wizard of Oz, and even an airstream with a functioning awning. I guess I'm not a themed-tree kind of girl.
Now that school is wrapped up, I feel like I can finally sit back, pop in The Family Stone, and celebrate the holidays. I already know the best part of my Christmas is going to be family and more than ever, Ethan.
Have a happy Friday...do something festive!!
