Yesterday I saw, on Facebook, that my brother's girlfriend had put up their Christmas tree already. I wanted one too! We have had a small beat up one, which we used for the past three years, it's done for. The cats have taken their toll on it, broken most of my ornaments and lights. So it was time to go out and get a new one. What better time, now there are plenty in stock, lots of decorations at decent prices too.
Nothing huge, not too small, just something sweet and comforting. I love multi-colored lights, they remind me of being a kid, laying under the tree, daydreaming, falling asleep. I saw a lovely white tree that caught my eye but I went with the traditional green.
It's quite sweet, I have it up already, a bit early but I love having it up! I usually wait until my birthday, December second, but this year it was nice to change things up.
|I still need some more ornaments, the old ones were pretty much tore up from the cats :(|

|They just cannot stay away from it. Evil tree bandits.|
