So, back in 2006 I got sick. I got really, really sick still have issues with my lungs and my voice and junk in my throat (sorry to spring that on all you). And I developed severe sensitivities to (many) certain scents (*yeesh* that was a mouthful) and so I haven’t had a real Christmas tree in quite a few years. It makes me sad because I love Christmas trees and I love the smell of them. But, y’know, breathing seems to be sort of vital so I have had the “pleasure” of having a fake Christmas tree. Can someone please tell me how on earth my synthetic Christmas tree sheds more than the real ones do? Honestly. Such a mess all the time.
I spend Christmas Eve and Christmas day at my parents’ house and my mom always has the most beautiful trees – yes, trees. As in plural. As in there’s one in almost every room – but the main one is always pretty spectacular….here’s one from a few years ago. Not her best but still pretty lovely.
