Oh Christmas Tree!

One of my favorite things to do in the holiday season is to pick out our Christmas tree with the family.  The smell of a fresh-cut fir tree and the sight of hundreds of green beautifully shaped trees brings out the joy at the end of each year.  It reminds me of the love and comfort our family shares when we are all together.

After searching for the perfect tree...

We finally found one.  Here is a picture of my tree and ornaments. 

Here is Jess' tree and ornaments.

And... this is Nel's tree and ornaments.

I hope you're enjoying the season.

When we were out shopping one day, I came across this bottle of wine.  The name made me smile, and just had to buy it.

Here's to my sweet friends!

PS: Where in Germany did your daughter go? How did she like it?


What are the odds of finding a bottle of wine with that name? Very nice. Hope you're saving it for a good ocassion. LOVE all your trees. They are beautiful. Looks festive at all your houses. The clock is counting down. Santa will be here before you know it. Take care.

Oh, what gorgeous trees. I could almost smell them through the screen. ;) I love the color of your teal/aqua ornaments, love Jess's tree skirt, and love the pretty reindeer hanging from Nel's, but my favorite is that wine bottle. 3 Girls, how amazing is that?!? I would never get rid of it. :)

All so festive! This is the first year we've tried a real tree...but we bought the kind that hardly smells! *Bummer!* Next year we know what kind to buy...and to get it early. Yours looks lovely!

Dear Sheri, I missed you, too, and I'm so glad to be back! I love all of your gorgeous trees! Your post really got me in the Christmas mood and also reminded me I have a lot of gifts that need some wrapping. Better go and do that now! I hope you have a wonderful new week and isn't December just magical?

Lovely Trees.

All unique and yet the freedom each had in decorating them and choosing the ornaments tell so much about your loving, and encouraging each own, relationship.

There's no time like this. Enjoy it!

Blessed greetings,


p.s. I don't like wine but I can't resist a beautiful bottle, a nice label or a meaningful name... hubby tells me he doesn't care - I buy the touching detail and he cheers ahahahah
