'Tis the Season
I just love our Christmas Tree. It's fake, of course...I would never dare put a real one in my house, unless it was in a non-carpeted room. And, well, that's pretty much the kitchen/dining room or the basement, so that would be lame. However, this tree is beautiful...and it's because Becca gave it to me. If you ever visit my house, and comment on something cute, chances are it came from Becca. She has totally decorated my entire house, and she always shares her great tastes with me. I love it! So thanks to Becca, I have a pretty tree.
Last year was the first Sheedy Christmas...at least, the first Rach & Hunter Sheedy Christmas. It's also the year Becca gave us the tree, so we had to find decorations. Hunter helped me pick out some ornaments at Target, and when we got the whole thing set up we were blown away at how perfectly it matched our living room. It's the perfect complement; I wish we could leave it up all year! Well okay, except for the part where it takes up half of our living room...but, whatever. Small price to pay, right?
Anyway. I love this tree of joy and thanksgiving. It makes me feel like a real grown-up, whenever I look at it! LOL. It's the crowning jewel on my attempt at adulthood. And when I sit here with all the lights out (except the tree lights), I think maybe adulthood can be magical after all.
