As I mentioned last week, one of my intentions for December is to cultivate Christmas traditions. And one of the big actions for this intention is complete:
He’s the newest addition to my apartment. Mr. Lively and I picked him out at the market around the corner. We used big and little white lights due to some inspiration from the Ralph Lauren trees downtown at their flagship store. And then a slew of my childhood Christmas ornaments filled out the rest. That little mouse about a third of the way from the top? She is from my first Christmas in 1984.
Each year I plan to get Mr. Lively an ornament as well so we can get a little more Mister on the tree.
