This is particularly special to me. Because this year? Is the first time buying/trimming my very own Christmas tree. And with my husband, at that! Our first Christmas spent together. Our first tree. I’m pretty jazzed about it. Sure, maybe the warm fuzzy feeling of decorating a tree with your husband might fade over the years and anniversaries… but this year, is special, and I’m gettin’ all cheesy about it.
Real Christmas trees are the only way to go. Nothing compares to the smell that fills your home.
We listened to Christmas music as we strung the lights around the tree. We busted out the 13 ornaments we have to hang on the tree and laughed because we have so few and each ornament’s memory is so young. But in 20 years from now, we’ll look at the palm tree ornament and smile, because we’ll remember exactly where we got it, and how perfect our honeymoon was.
Didn’t take long, but we put up the rest of our decorations: lights around the front window, a “mistletoe” scented candle, and a few other little things around the apartment.
Our first Christmas Season as husband and wife :)
