Picking out the perfect Christmas tree is serious business for me.
Some may find it a trivial chore, but I want a tree that will be worth the effort of cleaning, moving furniture, hauling boxes, lights, step ladders and more. But, once the mundane is done then the fun begins.
Each ornament that adorns the tree has a story to tell about my grandparents, parents or me. The tree is indeed important because it holds the past. And it must hold the past, in the form of many beloved ornaments, securely and with style.
