Christmas trees are my thing. My thang, y’all! I’ve had some favorites over the years, my Scandinavian tree, the Woodland theme that got featured on RealSimple.com, and last year’s cheery Vintage Tinsel tree.
This year I went a different way. And it has a lot of meaning to me. Every bit telling my story.
Little white birds floating somewhere between heaven and earth. Free. Resting in the fact they’re taken care of.
Red berries and bare winter branches.
Tiny white lights and tiny silver ornaments that reflect that light.
And my tree is small this year. A tabletop tree! I never thought I’d have a tabletop tree as my Christmas tree. But I do. And even its small size has meaning to me.
My tree is my walk this past year. It’s friends and it’s family. It’s faith. And it’s why I adore Christmas, what it means to me. That I am loved beyond what this world can even begin to comprehend. It’s the gift I was given so long ago. A gift I never asked for but, like all of us, desperately needed.
Beautiful, perfect love.
May you know the peace that love has brought me. This Christmas and every day you walk the earth. <3
