There are a lot of lights burned out, so I just used some of the blue lights we usually hang up outside. We both decided to pass on the ornaments and just enjoy the tree. I see this balance of light and dark.
It feels a little bit more like Christmas, and I am really looking forward to spending the time with Adam cooking, snuggling, working out and watching some Christmas movies.
Question to consider: How will you celebrate this year? Do you put a tree up because you want to, or because you "should?"
