Put the Lights on the Tree...

We trimmed our tree last week, partly in celebration of the fact that the mister finished a draft of his big paper for the quarter, but mostly because we love Christmas around here.

When we were first married we decided to find an ornament whenever we went to a new place. Now, as we hang them on the tree we're reminded of those times and places. I love making our own traditions, and this is one of my favorites.

San Francisco, CA
Leavenworth, WA
Pasadena, CA (a house to document our first 'house', aka non-apartment building)

We ended the festivities with some chocolate-peppermint schnapps milkshakes while watching a Christmas movie. A nice little mid-week break before the madness of finals week started.

Are you celebrating already? I'd love to know what you're up to!
