We got a tree… its tiny to fit our tiny apartment… about 4.5 feet tall and fake… but perfect. Over the weekend we decorated it while listening to Christmas music, cooked a lovely dinner at home and watched Love Actually (our favorite Christmas movie).

It was fun to combine our store bought ornaments with the ones that our families have given to us over the years. My favorite is of course my Michigan state ornament. Everyone in my family has one and seeing it makes me feel connected to them during the holiday season even though they are so far away.

It’s nice to think Andrew and I will do this together year after year for the rest of our lives. Maybe in a couple of years we’ll have a dog running around the tree trying to eat most of our ornaments. And then maybe in 3-4 years we’ll have a kid running around… trying to eat most of the ornaments.

I should probably look into edible ornaments.
