oh christmas tree…

December 20 2014. 001 (10)

here in west virginia, the dressing of the tree is something we all do together

as a family

it is a tradition that Lily already remembers well from previous years and something she wouldn’t stop talking about while still in miami

as well as during the sixteen hour car ride we took to get here

through a phone call with her avo Joao and avo Hayes, she knew a tree with lights would be here waiting for her to decorate

it was the first thing we did once we arrived

happy monday friends

i hope you had a great weekend

we took our time settling into family and winter

ps- if you would like to see more pictures of the tree, you can do so here and here
