Since some form of order has now been restored in our flat (post decorators) and the Christmas decorations have been put up! Years ago, after one of our first winter trips abroad, my husband and I started to buy a decoration from every place we went. Its amazing what you can find in Christmas decorations in October in LA!
So putting up our tree is a nice reminder of all the cool places we have visited over the years, from Santas from Stockholm and Helsinki to angels from Oslo, Reindeers from Madrid and more recently a Giant Lobster from Rhode Island! I even managed to pick up a little angel from Curitiba (Brazil) on a work trip in March!
I hope in years to come we will be still visiting cool places and adding to our little festive tree of memories!
