This year was the first year my husband and I have been able to get a real live Christmas tree. Before, we were in an apartment, then we got a puppy, then we had a baby... so this year we were finally able to get a real tree!
To commemorate this special event I had my husband cut a slice off the end of our Christmas tree and I turned it into a special hand-etched snowflake ornament for us. It's a little big and a little lopsided, but it'll be a special keepsake of our first real tree. On the back I wrote "Our First Christmas Tree - 2014."
