Christmas Tradition

When I was growing up, my family had a Christmas tradition. Every year we would each pick out a Hallmark ornament for the tree. Well, when you get married, you carry those fun traditions with you. So for our first Christmas and our second Christmas, Dustin and I were able to find a Hallmark ornament for each of us. We also started a new tradition, which involved us buying an ornament from Macy's. That tradition started because we lived in Chicago during our first year of marriage and it seemed like I visited the Christmas section of Macy's every week during that Christmas season. This year, we were sad that we couldn't find a Hallmark ornament that really fit us, so we decided to get our ornaments from Macy's only. This proved to be such a fun and magical time last night during our date. Here are the goodies that we found.

Dustin found a really neat "vintage-looking" Santa ornament. While we were searching, we realized that we didn't have a single Santa Claus ornament for our tree and this one would make a great addition to the tree.

The one I chose was actually found by Dustin. He saw it hanging in a tree and thought it fit me perfectly. I completely agree. It has such a fun and playful look to it. We can't wait to put up the tree after Thanksgiving so we can hang these beautiful treasures!
