Every December ( or November more likely)—and ever since I can remember—I’ve added new Christmas Tree ornaments to our tree.  Candy canes, ballerinas, icicles and snowmen; each had its own place among the tinsel and twinkle lights.  While the Christmas tree ornaments have varied over the years, this cherished holiday tradition and each ornaments significance has not; each ornament representing some of my favorite memories and cherished milestones.

I always smile when sifting through the boxes each year, uncovering the Christmas tree ornaments that instantly transport me back to a special time or place, like my first ballet recital or our first Christmas with Addy.  I knew when I married the Mr. that I wanted to continue this cherished holiday tradition in our home, so picking out the annual additions is still just as fun as ever (this year his ornament has to do with his favorite place, shhhhh don’t tell). 

Though we take the annual selection pretty seriously, I like to say there are no rules when it comes deciding on the perfect one.  I was a kid in a candy store recently when I stumbled upon so many fun ones in World Market.  While I did have to reign myself in a bit, I walked out with at least a dozen Christmas tree ornaments (including a glass pickle!) that will fit right in on our tree at home, and also as final touches when wrapping gifts. They’re the perfect add-on to pretty packages (I love adding an ornament to a great bottle of wine or champagne I’m gifting), and my favorite way to extend one of our holiday traditions to friends and family to create memories for years to come.  Tell me loves, what cherished holiday traditions do you share this time of year?  Truly, MKR
