My bloggy friend Cecily, an outstanding mother of three
I was a mother completely obsessed with the pretty colors. Whatever the pretty colors were for the season, I was very impressionable!
(mauve and ivory, lots of handmade ornaments, that was fun!).
Now remember, I am the only female in the household,
no one else could appreciate the white lights and lace! Or the mauve satin! :) This was followed by lots of iridescent stuff! Again, not a big hit with the men!
My husband is such a traditional sort, all he wanted for Christmas was the blue, green, red sort of lights he grew up with. NOTHING else said Christmas to him in the same way...
Much as I loved him, I was completely tunnel-visioned about this in my pursuit of the perfect Christmas Tree!
