Our Christmas tree will never grace the pages of any fancy home and decorating magazine because it is the epitome of nostalgic diarrhea.
And that is what makes it awesome.
There is something magical about sitting in front of the tree on a wintery evening while Christmas music streams into the living room. Our tree is adorned with old school lights that suck up more energy than my 5 year old and ornaments that carry with them memories of years past.
We have ornaments from places we traveled to, displays of affection for all things coffee related, declarations of loyalty to sports teams even though the team sucks, firsts such as marriage and first Christmases, and handmade ornaments from the boy child.
It’s a magnificent tree to us.
We get a new ornament every year to hang on our tree. It’s a testament
to surviving another year without killing each other over things like leaving socks on the kitchen table of our love as a family unit so it has to be something really special.
This year, our ornament comes from Ornaments With Love.
Ornaments With Love creates unique personalized ornaments that will make a great addition to any Christmas tree. They have over 2000 ornaments to choose from…
I was given the wonderful opportunity to choose an ornament for our own tree and I spent a good hour (not even lying) finding a perfect ornament. They have ornaments for hobbies:
And I can go on and on.
I chose the following ornament to represent our year in 2013 (I wanted to post the picture of our ornament but it has our last name on it. This is an example of what it looks like).
This is the first ornament on our tree that includes our fur ball.
Not only are these great additions for your tree, they are great ornaments to give to a loved one for Christmas.
You’d expect to pay a lot for these since the craftsmanship is phenomenal, but the prices are very reasonable. Very.
Ordering is easy and can be done online.
The ornament was mailed out quickly and you can actually track the status of your order.
And they offer international shipping!
Make sure that you place your orders in by the first week in December to get the ornament before Christmas.
