For the first time ever Mark and I have a large, real tree for Christmas! The first two years we were married we had a tiny artificial tree and last year we had a 3 foot Douglas fir but we went for the real deal this year.
I’ve been searching for and collecting red, silver, gold and mercury glass ornaments since this time last year, it was so much fun to hang everything on the tree and see it all come together.
We splurged a little and went with LED lights which will not only last longer but also cost less to operate because let’s face it, I’m going to have the tree plugged in all. the. time. It took a few minutes to get used to the bright, white light but we love it!
