Christmas decoration 1st
Of all my Christmas decorations, this one evokes the most nostalgic feeling. My mom had a tree almost exactly like this when I was growing up, and it was my favorite decoration for as long as I can remember. When I was getting married, I felt a little sad about having a home without THE tree, but it obviously was not something I was going to ask to take away from my mom! However, during our engagement, Bruce's grandpa passed away and we 'inherited' this beautiful tree from him -- so it has a double-fuzzy feeling for me, since it is like my childhood favorite and since it is a little piece of Bruce's grandparents' history, too.
