At our wedding we got 2 Christmas ornaments which started a great Christmas tradition.
Since then we've added ornaments to our tree bought from wherever we are on Christmas.
While in Paris for the holidays in 2008 I thought it would be great to bring home some ornaments. Luckily they made it across the Atlantic in one piece. We roamed the mostly empty streets on Christmas day...and it snowed on the final day of our visit. What a dream!
Mexico & it's warm temps is not exactly what comes to mind when you think of Christmas. Our trip last year was filled with sweet people and quality time together. What great memories we have from there! I love these ornaments because the large ball shows a family all together celebrating and playing piñata and having a great time.
This year, staying home here in NYC still means adding ornaments to our tree. The heart is from a shop at the Shops at Bryant Park. I love that it's a heart. Christmas is the season for love after all. The gift box is a Hallmark ornament that T picked out (well done swettie). There's a small tag at the top with 2010 on it.
I'm really excited to see where we'll be for the years to come and to add more ornaments on our tree.
I hope it is along the lines of this sweet tradition...
Hope you are enjoying the holidays. What are some of your traditions?
