When I was little I used to lay underneath the Christmas tree at night, looking up at all the lights and ornaments. My mom collected a new unique ornament each year, so our tree had lots of different styles and lots of color. I love that each ornament had a story of it's own, a reminder of our family vacation to Disneyland, sent to us by a family friend across the country, purchased on my parents first wedding anniversary, or the year I was born.
The first Christmas my husband and I were married I bought a pineapple glass ornament because we went to Hawaii for our honeymoon. I hope to carry on the tradition of collecting a new ornament each year, when I get enough I will have a beautiful tree like my moms. Here are a few ideas and ones that I love.
