Day 3: Ornaments
”Oh, Christmas isn’t just a day, it’s a frame of mind and that’s what’s been changing. That’s why I’m glad I’m here,
maybe I can do something about it.”
~Miracle on 34th Street
I love decorating the tree at my moms house for one main reason. My mom has been collecting ornaments every place we have been and we would pick an ornament ever year to add to the tree. So basically our tree has NO theme and is all random. But we love it that way. Every time we decorate the tree we take a trip down memory lane. Every time we pull out an ornament we have that ‘remember when we were in San Fran and we did this…’ or ‘remember we got this when we saw the Nutcracker at Lincoln Center!’ almost every ornament evokes a story and memory. Which my mother and I love. So as soon as I started to do all my traveling new ornaments came into my possession and I started to create my own collection of ornaments and memories. This year I can kinda show them off on my tiny tree. Right now, my favorite ornament is the moose shown above that I got in a little shop in Homer, Alaska. I cannot wait to see what ornaments I add to the collection next year!!
