Enamel Christmas Tree Charm gifted ℅ James Avery. All thoughts and opinions expressed are my own.
Christmas is a special time of the year for my family. From when I was a child, one of my fondest memories is every year picking out a fresh cut tree. Being able to share the quality time with my family decorating, laughing, and getting into the spirit was always dear to me.
Budding Christmas Traditions
During the early years of our marriage, we never shared any traditions for Christmas. David was either on a deployment or we would be home visiting family. It wasn’t until December of 2011 that David and I quickly realized that we needed to create our own memories. After years of being married, we needed something to call our own. I automatically wanted to share my love for fresh cut trees. Never would I imagine the pushback that I would receive with one simple request. David explained that growing up his family never had a real tree and his allergies would be horrid with one. We reached a point where we needed to figure out what would work best for us.
