without further ado, our 2012 christmas tree.
it is very similar to last year, but with a few additional touches of color.
i feel like something is still missing. it needs to be... anchored. with ribbon or additional garland or something. perhaps next year. or when the good stuff goes on sale.
coming home to a lit tree is so heart warming. driving to and from work in the dark has a way of chilling your soul. thankfully, the presence of the season quickly thaws the negativity so that only light and joy remain.
