Each year for Christmas my husband received an ornament. When we were married this box (boxes) of ornaments came with him. These mementos from his childhood adorn our tree every year along with cherished ones we’ve collected together.
We’ve started this tradition with our children. Each year they receive an ornament to commemorate the year. If there is no year on it, I find an inconspicuous place to mark the child’s name and the year. One day, when they move out. They will have their own box of precious keepsakes from our Christmas’ together as a family.
The ornament pictured here is one of my favorites. It’s one I picked up from a unique Christmas shop in Alexandria, VA, while on a business trip. I fell in love with the shape and colors of this fragile, glass ornament and found a way to keep it as a carry on without it breaking on the trip back to Florida.
