I was feeling not so good this time last year, so my husband and I decided to skip the Christmas tree. Have to say, I really missed it. It’s just not the same without the scent of pine – yes we get a fresh tree. I am not a Christmas tree snob or anything; my parents always had an artificial tree. I just like the smell of a fresh tree and I don’t want to have to store an artificial one for 11 months of the year. Anyway, we got one this year. It’s up and it’s decorated. Perfect timing too, it is super duper snowy today. It's a great day to stay in, put up decorations and update blogs.
This beautiful gingerbread house ornament is one of three that I received from my friend Janice; yup, the same one that did my website. She does beautiful baking like this all the time. If you want to try here’s the recipe.
