Christmas trees are magic.
There is comfort in the glow of the light, and wonder held in its branches.
I love our tree. Years ago I decided on a white, glass and metallic theme and haven't looked back. Before kids, I was known to decorate and redecorate the tree twice, and once THREE times. I don't think I've ever told anyone else that but for my husband. I was that set on perfection.
Now I am just happy to get it up in a timely manner, and you know what? It doesn't look that much different or any less perfect that the years I redecorated it multiple times.
I hope my kids get from our tree what I do. Hope and light, mystery and magic.
