O’ Christmas Tree {2012}

And the Christmas tree is up! 

Over the weekend we finished decorating our first Christmas tree in our new house! For the past 3 years, Matt and I have sadly purchased a “Charlie Brown” style Christmas tree to fit in our tiny little living room. Now that we have more space and higher ceilings we decided it was time to splurge on our first 8 footer! 

So without further ado…


This year I took pictures of my tree without a flash in Av mode (set it to the smallest number). I still don’t really know how to use my camera, but I think my tree pictures turned out better than last year.

A few of my most special ornaments (L-R): our first “M” ornament purchased together, our wedding invitation ornament from our dear friend Mel, our first married Christmas ornament from my parents, my alma mater ornament also from my parents

My tree topper (for the second year in a row). You can check out our first married Christmas tree {HERE}.

And I can’t forget about the mini Christmas tree on my desk at the office! For only $9.99, this festive lil guy is bringing me lots of cheer while I work.

Oh, and I finished addressing my Christmas cards! I promise to post a picture of our 2012 card soon, as well as the rest of our decorations around the house. 

Is your tree up?

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!
