O Christmas Tree
Last night was the annual lighting of the giant holly tree in downtown Avondale Estates. We have gone every year since we moved here (5 years!) And it is magical every time. The kids are definitely in to it, but I have an adult love affair with it as well. I love singing Christmas carols, sipping hot cider and munching on Krispy Kreme donuts (yes, so decadent!) It has been really cold every year so far, and this year was no different-37 degrees! But the sky was clear, no wind and it felt so, so Christmassy! Seriously, in Atlanta, it is hard to come by sometimes. I really do miss the holidays in MI, the snow falling, the beautiful snow-covered landscapes, drinking coffee by the fireplace. Just the coziness and hunkering down when the wind is whistling hard outside and the crackle of a roaring fire inside. Welcome winter!
