O' Christmas Tree

Nothing says "Christmas" like the smell of pine in your living room on a winter morning! Last weekend, Matt and I picked out our first married Christmas tree together at a lot near our home.
 We even decided to splurge on a handcrafted Christmas wreath. 
loading up the car!
...and it's UP!

Matt and I finally finished decorating our twinkling fir over the weekend. Decked out with 6 boxes of lights, over 80 ornaments, and a homemade bow topper, our yearly display of yuletide cheer is finally complete!

A few of my favorite ornaments...
And my homemade bow tree topper!!!

And just to be an overachiever, I finished {and sent out} our Christmas cards!
