Two Saturdays ago we walked down a few blocks to a little tree lot and picked out a Christmas tree. I don't think my family has ever had a real tree before, so it was a new experience. We picked one out, Dave carried it home, we strung some lights, picked out our favorite ornaments and now we each comment at least once a night how much we love our little tree. It's a perfect fit for the little corner in our apartment. And the microwave next to it is just so charming, don't you think?
It's not our first Christmas tree (but our fourth!) but the first one we've owned and that was bigger than 3 feet. So, we're feeling pretty fancy.
