And so it begins!! Days of December....Have you ever noticed that when you have the clearest 'mind picture' of what you want to end up with, you have the hardest time creating it? (And when you just 'go with the flow' you get something you like without a lot of effort?) I had that experience with this first December Daily layout...struggled to make it come out like I wanted! We'll see where it goes from here.

Journaling: Our Christmas tree this year was a major departure from tradition. For the first time ever, we went with an artificial, pre-lit tree. (Something I had long sworn I would never do!) There were several reasons that we decided to make this switch. The biggest one was safety. The fire hazard of having a live tree in the house for several weeks just seemed unreasonable. We got a nice tree (though my buyer’s remorse started as we drove out of Gerten’s parking lot with it packed in the back of our car), and we had fun decorating it (though it wasn’t as much ‘easier’ than a live tree as I had hoped it would be). I’m still withholding judgement on whether or not I can commit to using it every year, though. It’s just...different. Really different.
