We Didn’t Forget About The Tree

I’m going to admit — when Zach and I didn’t decorate yesterday, the thought occurred to me that we may not actually get to it.  Keep postponing it, excuses, etc.

But nope –we got to decorating right as I got home from work (Zach skied today, so we both got home around the same time).

Zach started with the lights while I got all of our ornaments out of their boxes and added their hanging pin.

Beautiful! Within an hour, we had a beautiful tree that makes us feel like home :).  Unfortunately we never got to putting up a tree last year, so this means that much more to us this year.

My New Favorite Ornament

Honestly, how beautiful is this ornament?  Well just wait until I tell you what it actually is.

My friend Jessica who was in town this weekend brought this little beauty as a gift.  It’s actually a clear ornament with the lyrics to our wedding song inside.  How amazing is that?  Jason Mraz, I Won’t Give Up.

So thoughtful, and pretty.  It makes me smile every time I look at it :).

Now it’s time to sit down to dinner and enjoy or beautiful tree!  Have a great night everyone — Merry Christmas ❤

(Promise I won’t be saying that every single day until the holiday…)

Question of the evening:  What’s your favorite/most meaningful ornament?  From childhood or now…

Our first Christmas tree as The Jara’s 🙂

I’ll have pictures of the finished product tomorrow.  By the time we got him up and standing, ornaments out of storage, we were more concerned about dinner than decorating.

Happy Holiday’s everyone!
