Decking the Halls

For the holidays this year, I decided to take it upon myself to captain the Christmas ship at my house.The clock was ticking and my December was crawling away so I said, you know what-  I’m getting a tree. Today.  And so I did!

I went and saw the lovely folks at Mayo Garden Center who greeted me with hot cocoa and cookies – and that was before I found this babe of a tree! I got a box of gold ornaments and a baby poinsettia plant too! I honestly was struggling to feel the Christmas magic, but they really made it special for me. Especially since it was my first solo tree hunt.

The family loves it! I’m so relieved! It seemed everyone was so busy, I was Thrilled to surprise everyone with the house all clean and and the halls all decked! I even wrapped all the presents and decorated my tree all on my own!
