Anyway, I'm so excited because we finally live in a place that can accommodate a "big" tree. The box claims it to be 7 feet tall. Our first two Christmases together, we had probably a 2 foot tree--maybe 3 from the right angle. Our last two apartments were simply too small to house anything larger. Our first apartment was a studio and it was a learning how to share practically nothing and still felt like we had everything type of a situation. Brand new newlywed life has a way of doing that. The tree sat on top of our folding kitchen table that year. Luckily we didn't stay in that apartment for long. Then our last apartment was substantially bigger than our studio but the living room was filled with two oversized couches and our kitchen table since the dining room was filled with our computer desk and keyboard. That year the tree sat on top of the DVD case, behind the front door. It was the only place unless we wanted it in the middle of the room and turn our couches into obstacle course walkways.
But this year... this year, we are in love with our beautiful fiber optic tree and pine scented candles. The magic of Christmas is in our hearts, lives and home. And I sure hope it stays for awhile! ;)
