Decorating Our First Tree

As I've said in previous posts, I am very into Christmas this year. And I knew that I wanted to have a Christmas tree because it would be T and I's first Christmas living together. We knew it would be a bit of a challenge to get a skinnier tree that was actually taller than me (all the skinny ones are like 5'5" and I didn't want to be taller than our tree), but it only took three places to find one that would work for us. It's pretty cute, with it's imperfections, but it fits great in the space and doesn't overcrowd the room. I'm always worried about that for some reason.

Each Christmas that we've been together, we've brought each other a Christmas ornament. I'm so happy that we started doing this from the beginning now that we actually have our tree to put them on. The filler ornaments and star we picked up at Target. Since don't have a tree skirt though, but I haven't looked very hard either...

We played Christmas music, I drank hot cider, we laughed. All in all, a great night.
