I don't know which way to go. Any advice?

To Tree or Not To Tree?

Mike and I (mostly me) thought long and hard about getting a Christmas tree this year. But so many unknowns arose: Where would we put it? We’d need a stand, wouldn’t we? And something to cover the stand?  Would I  go completely crazy trying to sweep up pine needles?

But, oh that smell. And the lights! I love the lights.

So I did this instead:

It’s our lovely tall-as-a-tree plant in all her Christmas finest! I have no idea what kind of plant this is. It’s absolutely nothing like a Christmas tree–it has long spindly branches with eight great, big, droopy banana-esque leaves that dangle from each end.  But isn’t she something all gussied up?!

Never underestimate the power of Christmas lights on the soul.
