I have a lot of favorite things… running and baseball being two. But one thing that ranks up there as a favorite is Christmas time.
I love EVERYTHING about the season… the lights, the music, the decorations, holiday cards, traditions, etc. To say that I go crazy over this holiday would be a slight understatement. In fact, if you meet me around this time of year, you are likely to learn very quickly just how much I love this holiday.
My best friend, whom I met Freshman Year of college, is hardly any stranger to this. In fact, she used to plan trips to Crate and Barrel just so I could ooo and ahhh over the Christmas ornaments. When I first visited her in NYC during the holidays, we spent an entire day wandering all over the city looking at Christmas Decorations. In fact, Christmas music and several strands of Lights will instantly make me happy.
Of course, this means I tend to go crazy when I decorate my home for the holidays. So I thought I would share some pictures of my decorations with you all.
My Main Christmas Tree – Yes, I have a LOT of Ornaments and Lights
And no, I have not actually done my Christmas shopping… those are all fake presents that I wrapped to put under the tree every year. Christmas Trees look funny without presents underneath…
I have had this tree since I was a baby. My mom started this tree for my for my first Christmas and ever since then, ornaments have been added… to the point where there is now about 2 ornaments on every branch and even some in between branches hanging from the strand of lights. This tree sort of tells my life story. The ornaments represent either something that was my main interest that year or some significant event that happened that year. Of all of the decorations that I have, this one means the most to me. This is usually the first decoration I put up as well.
I realize this is a break from the running talk… But we will be back tomorrow with Throwback Wednesday! I know you are waiting on the edge of your seat.
