A Simple Tree Skirt Alternative

It’s not yet Thanksgiving, but this Sunday, we put up our Christmas tree! Considering that we almost skipped the tradition entirely last year, this makes it the first time we’ve done so before slicing into turkey. (Also a first? Holiday music in November. I’ll take it!)

Vintage Photo Grid
