Make a beautiful corner: Christmas edition.

We didn't get a tree this year. It came down to one Saturday afternoon, way too many things to get done, and the realization that those needles and the extra vacuuming would drive me insane.

Is it even Christmas without a tree?! Answer: yes. I ran out to Paper Source and bought a few supplies to make a wreath and some Gingerbread Man garland, then decorated the apartment with wrapped gifts and Christmas cards. It isn't Rockefeller Center, but it's nice and we'll get to share my parents' tree when we get to their house later today.

I have tons to post about the way we approached gifting this year, but obviously I will wait until they are opened in a couple days. Wooo Christmas! I sure do love this holiday.
