At first I had planned not to decorate for Christmas due to the serious mess of boxes already around my home and the fact that we are headed to visit family on Christmas morning. A quick conversation with my mother and she changed my mind. She suggested that as a compromise I at least put up a tree. No other decor. She was so right! I put it up yesterday and it has been making me smile all day! It’s not much but it sure brings in the holiday cheer!Please pardon my less than ideal photo quality here. I know very little about photography but my sister Brandy at Brandy and Beau Photography does, so check her out.
