With both myself and my other half away for Christmas (not to mention being gone 14 hours a day), we thought getting a tree this year would be a lot more hassle than it was worth. To help give me that sense of the holidays, my lovely man surprised me with a wreath for our front door and my mom packed up a few of the smaller holiday decorations from her home for us.
It makes a difference. There is a nice little holiday feel here, helped by a yummy little simmer pot of holiday potpourri. Maybe next year, if we decide to not get a tree again and we have the time, we can do one of these awesome alternative tree ideas. Too cool.
