Christmas season in our new little home is cozy, warm, and very special. We always have the twinkley lights on, and as I mentioned in a previous post, this is the first year that I’ve had a real Christmas tree! Starting our “together life” meant starting a brand new Christmas ornament collection for our tree.
I didn’t like the idea of going to Target or some other store and just buying ornaments in bulk, because in my family, we tend to just get a few ornaments each year. Getting a few special ornaments rather than 40 similar ones that come in a box will always feel more magical to me. In my book it was totally fine to have a pretty bare tree this year, knowing that next year we would fill it some more. To my surprise, I learned that Dylan’s mom had collected special ornaments for Dylan each year and she very kindly gifted them to us.
So, I’m going to keep this post short and take you on a journey through our Christmas tree. These are not all of the ornaments but they’re a few of my favorite ones. Oh, and what (or shall I say WHO) is at the top of our tree? Scroll down and find out for yourself!
