21 years ago (eek! how did I get that old?!?) I decided I needed my own Christmas tree in my room at my parents' house. So I saved up for a while, then went out and bought this 4 foot tree that I still use to this day.
I got some simple glass ball ornaments, a thin strand of garland, a few lights, and a simple gold star. I also picked up an ornament called Puppy Love. It was a Hallmark ornament, and was the first in a series. I never have liked starting things in the middle, so I thought it would be appropriate to buy an adorable little puppy ornament that also happened to be the first in a new series.
Little did I know that it would be one of those very long-lasting series of Hallmark ornaments, still going strong 21 years later! I don't have number 21 just yet, but as soon as I have it in my hot little hands, my little 4 foot tree will be decorated with 21 puppies.
I haven't put up a tree the last few years because our house is pretty crowded, and I miss being able to put up our giant 8 footer. But this year I wanted to see the puppies, so I made a space.
Wishing all my friends and family the best of the holiday season, no matter what holiday you celebrate, if any. Puppy love to you all!!
