Christmas at my house

So Christmas has finally arrived at our apartment. I only say this because we finally made our way to our storage space – yes, we have to rent storage space… space is limited in New York! – and took out our Christmas boxes, which included all the ornaments and the Christmas stand so we could FINALLY get a tree and put it up!

I love it! It’s one of my favorite trees that we’ve gotten as a couple, in fact. We’ve lived together 3 years now and the first Christmas tree was too small – really it was so short, it looked strange – the second year was a little too closed up so it was hard to put ornaments in it but this one is perfect… or close to! Having a Christmas tree in the house just makes me happy. I’m not sure if it’s due to childhood memories (we had one of those fake white ones… yes, we were awesome!) or just the idea of Christmas in the winter, curling up in a blanket with a glass of wine… or hot chocolate! Since the first decade and a little more of my life was spent in a summer Christmas (I’m from Brazil), I just love the actual cold Christmas. Probably due to movies and being brainwashed into thinking that’s what a Christmas SHOULD be, but I still buy into it. In either case, winter and a Christmas tree always puts me in the holiday spirit! πŸ™‚

My sister came over to help me with the ornaments, as she does every year, and this year she brought with her an early Christmas gift for me. Isn’t it ADORABLE??? She even has on a knit dress and cap. Too cute!


Hope you’re all having a wonderful holiday season!

    We didn’t put a tree up this year, mainly due to your former problem πŸ˜› Lack of space. We live in a tiny 1 bedroom apartment and barely have room to walk.

    Your tree looks lovely and the knitted ornament is so adorable!

    Love the tree and love the ornament! You used to have a white tree? That sounds jazzy. πŸ˜€

    Lovely tree and completely adorable knitted ornament!
    I would give up my first born (okay, maybe not, but darn close!) to have a Christmas that wasnt white and freezing! A beach and a barbeque sound pretty fine after 2 weeks of -40.

    Discovered your blog from the Blog Comment Train on Ravelry. You take such pretty photos of your knitting. Putting up the tree is so much fun, glad you are happy with this year’s tree. That’s a very cute ornament.
