I love looking at all the blog home tours and get so much inspiration from the incredibly talented women who put so much time and effort into creating a beautiful home for their loved ones. The main thing I have learned is it does not matter how big your home is or how much money you have to spend on decorations, but the memories you make and the traditions you pass on. As much as I love my main tree, nothing means more to me than my “kid tree” which I purposefully do not fancy up. It is filled with all the wonderful, beautifully tacky (hello toilet paper roll) ornaments that I cherish. To all the teachers out there, please don’t ever stop making the ornaments for the kids to give to their parents, they truly are cherished. My kids are 22 and 17 and I love looking at these and pray they will do the same with their kids some day.
