Our Christmas tree holds some of my most prized possessions: ornaments. Over the years, Christopher and I have picked out a special ornament for every year we've been married. We bought our first ornament while on our honeymoon at Disney World, and our second on a trip to Bronners Christmas Wonderland in Frankenmuth, MI (it's a family portrait with our kitty, Ulia, of course.)
These ornaments aren't expensive or fancy by any means, but they each hold a special memory, a moment shared between the two of us. They make me smile every time I look at them, nestled in our tree, surrounded by glowing lights and glittery bulbs.
This year, we added a very special ornament to our tree, and I have a very special announcement to go along with it. Our family tree is growing -- we're having a baby!! We are over the moon with happiness over this little one and so thrilled to be starting this new adventure together. Little Baby Ross, due May 2013.
So, from our growing family to yours, Merry Christmas. I hope you spend it surrounded by love and happiness. See you in 2013!
