We very patiently waited until a few days before Thanksgiving to decorate our tree this year. Yes, we still have pumpkins on the front porch and I respect not wanting to rush the holidays, but last year we moved between Thanksgiving and Christmas so the whole season was a bit of a blur. We decided to buy a bigger tree, purge our old ornaments in favor of fresh new ones, and go with a more simple look for 2018. I used to dislike these vintage, arguably tacky, glass ornaments but now they feel like a throwback. Michael’s carries the cutest selection, so we chose a few based on the things we loved this year. We made cocoa, turned on Michael Bublé, and even got a group photo at the end. I’m so thankful to be settled here and can’t wait to share more about life in Cape May, the new house, and these four humans.
