Unwrapping memories with each cherished ornament.

I was putting up the tree last night and came across some personalized ornaments that I've collected over the years. I have one with the names of my husband and I for each year we've been together. I also have ones with our dogs' names on them. We lost our old girlie in January, so unwrapping her ornaments was a bittersweet moment. There was a sniffle or two, then sweet memories of her goofy ways and loving manner. What a gorgeous way to decorate- with tokens of love.
