For the first time in well over a decade I put up a Christmas Tree.
It’s a black tree. I started searching for the decorations I wanted, which was jewel tones, bright colors for my decorations. I found a large set of shatterproof Christmas balls that were pink, blue, purple, and green. I found some tinsel the same colors. Jackpot.
Still I wanted more but most of what I found that I liked had glitter on it. I love glitter. It’s pretty BUT it is very messy. Glitter gets everywhere and stays around forever. Months later you’ll still find glitter… So I said no glitter.
Happy with my set of balls and tinsel for this year I put up my tree. Artificial trees mean you have to move around limb to make it look full. Out of practice I struggled and ended up texting my friend Shannon to come help me. Only I didn’t make myself clear on what I needed help with.
Thinking I was at loss on decorating the tree, she showed up with a skirt and decorations that matched the colors she knew I had chosen. Can you guess what every single ornament she bought had on it? Yep glitter.
I waited until she was halfway done putting the glitter decorations on before I told her my story. She enjoyed she’d foiled my plan. She told me I wasn’t suppose to complain about a gift, laughing gleefully. (Before you think bad of me she knew I wasn’t complaining. We were just good naturely ribbing each other.) The glitter now has gotten out of hand. It’s been glitter jokes since. Hahahahahaha.
I believe I just may regret admitting my non-glitter plan. She has informed me that it is now her mission to make sure everything she gets me, from now on, has glitter. 😯
I am really grateful though. I admit it looks better with the glitter. It looks much better than I had planned. I love my tree especially the glitter ornaments. Just don’t tell Shannon 😉
Find your joy and laissez les bons temps rouler!
