"All the art of living lies in
a fine mingling of
letting go and holding on."
Those are actually NESTS you see in my tree.
The love birds flying over the red heart? We've had that ornament since we were first married. The kids "made" us kiss every time we hung it on the tree! The other birds are new, I got them to go with the nests.
Which I got to with our NEW tree.
Maybe I should say our different tree, cause they're new every year....
But this year's different.
Last night we decorated our tree ~ for the first time without the kids. And without all their childhood ornaments. With my new DIY ornaments, and my nests...I did my best to enjoy creating a different tree. I got teary once or twice...and was a bit crabby with my husband...but I like my tree. Might invite the kids for dinner and decorating next year ~ if they don't mind letting me fix my tree my way!
Just me, hanging out, learning how to mingle the letting go and the hanging on!
