Most people feel the tree is the centerpiece of the season. I happen to agree. I am not one to have a themed tree. What makes our tree special are the ornaments that are hanging on it.
Each place we travel, we collect an ornament. Amazing daughter one year said it was like looking at our travel journal. Well said. When we are putting up our tree each piece of history is relived, a laugh is shared, a dish becomes alive again. That is Christmas to me.
The tree this year is shorter and fatter! I just love full trees.
All lit up! We were almost finished with the decorating.
A Belgium lace Santa. Can you think chocolate??
There is just something about a Santa attired in full Scottish gear! I love that he is playing the bagpipes!
Delft, Holland. The blues…..
Our whirling Turkish friend!
Our 20th anniversary trip. Seafood, hiking, and wine…
We will never forget our roots!
Amazing Daughter feels that no tree is complete without this!
Don’t you just love this time of year???
