o christmas tree

 It's that time of year again...where has 2012 gone?!  Last night, R and I decided to go get our tree.  I wanted to wait until at least December 1st (makes it feel more official to me).  However, its forecasted to rain all this week and the weekend, so we took advantage of the clear night.

Decorating the tree is one of my absolute favorite things about preparing for this season.  I put on Christmas music, drink eggnog and go about meticulously placing all of our ornaments.  Since moving out to California, I have also made sure to have a live tree every year!  I love picking out the perfect tree for us and the smell of pine filling our house!

I also have a small obsession with ornaments!  I have been collecting them since college, and each year take so much joy picking out the perfect ornament.  It has saved me from buying all the ornaments at one time, and I love seeing a tree full of ornaments that I hand-picked or were gifted to me.  A tree full of love!

I have not picked out my ornament this year, but decided to put together a collection of ones that I have found online that I'm currently loving right now.  I know there is a very apparent theme, and my tree is very much proof of that!  But, how perfect is the hummingbird!  In case you are looking for some inspiration for your decorating, or want to add some unique pieces this year, here are some real fun ones!  A lobster that is bound to be a great conversation piece, a small tribute to London and the Olympics or some beautiful glass balls all would make great additions to the season!
