deck the halls...

...with love & memories~~ the very best decorations of all.after the rushing about, it is so good to be back home on a cold night. to light the candles. to light the tree.unpacking ornaments means a journey through times past. each year something special is added to everyone's collection.some ornaments hold laughter of a time that was silly. some hold memories that show just how much we have grown. some hold memories of love for those no longer with us here.there is no theme. there is no color coordinating. our tree is a patchwork of love...pieces of ourselves.amid the joyful lights there are glimpses of where we've been on nearly every branch.a tree bursting with warmth & love on a cold winter night....topped with our Christmas Angelsilently watching down on us all.
may your Christmas be lit with love & topped with joy!

Goodness I love Christmas--and I love a tree that is permitted to express itself and the love it represents :)

Such a lovely tree! But what's more beautiful is the meaning behind each ornament that inspires the true sense of Christmas :)

Buon Natale!!

This is so beautiful. I love that the ornaments on your tree have meaning to you and your family. Not all, but many, on my tree have history. It makes me feel good each year to revisit these old friends and the stories that brought them into our lives.
