This has been one rollercoaster of a year and I swear that while time moved at a snail’s pace earlier this year, I feel like it’s just sped up since, because I can’t believe it’s December! Decorating took a little longer than previous years because we acquired another vintage aluminum Christmas tree, a blue one, so things had the shuffle about, including moving furniture and lamps. Yes, I’m that crazy about Christmas! If you’re new to the blog, then you’ll also spy I’m simply in love with not only aluminum trees, but also these bizarre little stuffed reindeer that you’ll see scattered everywhere.
A blue aluminum tree has been on my wish list since I first knew of their existence, and we were lucky enough to score one on Ebay earlier this year. We also added another holy grail item, the rotating Christmas tree stand and color wheel all-in-one by Evergleam, as seen in action above. And, no, we really don’t actually have that many presents to hand out to friends and family, they are all part of my system of cat-proofing of our trees, which you can read about in this post.
When it comes to actual holiday of Christmas this year, it will be different for sure. While Patrick and I don’t travel for the holidays normally, our newer tradition of going to Disneyland Christmas Day won’t be happening due to the pandemic. So I think it will just be a day at home watching Christmas movies and calling our families. Which is of course the safest and most responsible thing we can be doing.
