It’s a Jolly day

 

 

Last year we had our first Christmas tree ever! I purchased one from the store, it was small and cute and artificial. It felt a bit scary to have a tree but I just did it! This year we decorated downstairs as well as upstairs and today we will head to a local tree farm to get a real tree. I want this to be a joyful day full of love and happiness. We will decorate the tree, make some Holiday cookie dough for baking and watch a new Christmas movie.

Have a Jolly day full of the giving spirit we carry all year through!

  1. I’m happy, that you also will get yourself a real tree this year, Lynn. With kids in the house, a real tree is so special to them ❤
    Enjoy it all and remember, that no one can take away your great times ❤

  2. May I ask why this was your first tree? Curiously, this is the first year we have not had a tree and I gave my beloved expensive fake to charity. I love the smell of new trees but highly allergic. Make sure it is not near a radiator or the leaves will fall off! 🎄

    • I met him when I was 20 and a year later was secretly married, then pressured to change religions and finally moved overseas. No holidays or gifts allowed. I relocated back to my home state 8 years ago and we have slowly adjusted. He married a second wife, had another child. Allot of anxiety and worry over years of rules and his control. So a tree was pretty scary haha
