As a full fledged, real grown up with a job and stuff, I decided that this year we were buying our very own Christmas tree. No, neither Nate nor I will be in Providence for Christmas (nor will we be with each other), but I’ve found that waiting to celebrate Christmas until I get to California makes for too little holiday cheer. Thus, hello little “tabletop tree” from Whole Foods!! It took all of ten minutes to dress and has a rather piddly amount of ornaments on it, but it’s a Christmas tree all the same, and I love it.
May I also recommend the She & Him Christmas Album, available on itunes. It’s rather lovely and makes for great tree decorating/ holiday party music.
