Its beginning to look a lot like Christmas....

Lauren decorating her tree

(my son) 
just got home 
from chopping the tree
 I stayed home with the baby
while she napped
I love that he went out into the forest 
and picked the tree nice and fresh its so intimate
don't you think
It is the
 ultimate of Christmas in the mountains
the man, in the snow, with his dog, and a saw
the silence of the woods, and the crunch of snow
Perhaps we will decorate it tonight and I can do a little family 
photo shoot
I love being behind the lenses during the holidays it gives just enough degrees of separation 
to not get sucked into the madness
I love carols playing on stereo, fire crackling in the fireplace some eggnog, cocoa or hot cider
little twinkle lights, ornaments with stories
I love stringing popcorn and cranberries and writing Christmas cards to friends and family
Fingers crossed...
I will get enough of the holiday experience here so that I won't feel required to go home and decorate 
my apartment
Thinking about it 
is giving me a headache
after all this year it will only be me and the cat and other than a new place for her to hide Bushka doesn't really appreciate 
or care if I have a tree
Does it sound like I am trying to talk myself out of decorating?
You are absolutely correct! 
Does my

  1. I love this photo! Sounds like a wonderful Christmas experience, but if you're like me, you'll still end up decorating your apartment at least a little. :)
