Meet Felix, our Christmas Tree. I grew up always having a real tree, and I am so thankful for that. That fresh tree smell just filled up the entire house, and just made everything feel that much more festive. Since Andy and I moved to Vancouver, we’ve spent the majority of Christmases just the two of us (expensive flights at Christmas, mixed with working in retail have plagued us to such a life) and I’ve always insisted we have a real tree, just to have a piece of home with us ont eh other side of the country. Somehow, I started to naming our tree every year. Let’s be honest, this isn’t shocking news. In the past we’ve had Dougie, Spriggy and this year we have Felix. I can’t even take responsibility for Felix’s name this year, my sister offered the suggestion of said name, and it just fit.
I should also mention, that this Christmas was a very special one. My Mum and sisters were here on the west coast to celebrate the holidays. It was extra special because it was the first time my Mum has come to visit us since moving to Vancouver, and we were really excited to show her a peek into our everyday lives. I have to admit, I didn’t take very many photos during their visit, I was so into just being with them that pulling out my camera became a bit of an after thought. I suppose that’s the way it should be.
One last thing of note, this sweater coat is the softest, most comfortable thing ever. Anyways, I know I’m a little after the fact, but I hope you all had a wonderful holiday season, and were surrounded by those you love. I know I certainly was.
