Over the years, we have come to be rather minimalistic but there are those special keepsakes that we want to be able to cherish forever so thought I’d share what it is we do with those special gifts.
For as long as I can remember, we have taken those special keepsakes and turned them into Christmas ornaments. Everything from wedding favors to photos of yesteryear, gifts from friends all the way to special hand written notes from great-grandparents make their way onto our Christmas tree each and every year. These otherwise lost treasures now have a way of being showcased and honored.
Even if what we hang is an insider joke to our family and others just see the tree for its beauty, it gives us a fun walk down memory lane reminiscining over these treasures during the holidays and I feel like our tree now has a story to tell beyond just the pretty. Maybe this will become a tradition in your family too!
Now you know what elephants and beer koozies have in common – they make their way onto our Christmas tree and boy, do they bring back some great memories.
Hope you will do the same and tell a story with your Christmas Tree!
