I was so excited to get a real tree for Christmas this year. Our first tree at our first apartment together. I finally finished decorating it last night. We kept the decorations fairly simple with white lights and vibrant purple, pink and blue ornaments. For a tree topper, I used thick, gold ribbon to make a bow. (It needs some work so it's not fully pictured.)
Our apartment smells of balsam and I love it. I'm really looking forward to waking up Christmas morning and exchanging gifts before hurrying off to see friends and family throughout the day.
