I’m one of those people who may not have the most fashionable Christmas tree, but I definitely have a memory filled one. There’s a lot of handmade, hand-me-down, and random ornaments that I adore. There are always those few special ones that I get so excited for every year when I unwrap them. I have a hand blown glass egg with little feet sticking out that Brad picked out one year. It totally reflects his fun loving personality which is why I love it so much. An owl ornament that either my mother or grandmother made (forgot who made it), a hand-me-down ornament that looks vintage to me. It’s definitely been loved (missing a foot), and lastly a foot print of Samantha when she was 6 weeks old. I consider this her first ornament. All little treasures to me that I can’t wait to pass down to Samantha.
