I am late. Christmas has past, but I wanted to share all the beautiful Christmas trees that I saw over our whirlwind trip to Chicago this weekend. Some were small, others large, but all perfect and with their own story. Every year, Christmas is special no matter what. I realize that now. It used to be all about Santa, then it was all about the things I HAD to have, even more recent, the cookies and food I was going to eat, and now, this year, it was about family. Though Christmas wasn’t as blissful as it once was for me, all I know is that I am truly grateful to have my family. For those that we recently lost, they were missed more than words can express, but every year, no matter what, they will be in our hearts. Love the family you have and cherish every moment.
