The night after I put it up, nature decided to decorate right along with me, and frosted my window just beautifully.
I didn't set my tree up by the fireplace this year, because it's in the same room as the TV and I didn't want to compete with video games, or hafta turn off the tree for movie watching. Have I mentioned Ben's family is all coming here for Christmas... like for five days. Yup, I figured it was a good idea to set the tree up in my front living room as kinda a sanctuary, so when things get tense (not if, when...and not because I don't adore Ben's family, just cuz that's what five days of family will do) I can sit with some apple cider (bought myself a whole case! Merry Christmas to me) and just stare at my tree for a little twinkle therapy.
The red decorations got "re-assigned" to mantle duty.
Ahhhhh, twinkles. How I love you.
