The sign of a good marriage is the ability to creatively compromise. I was reminded yesterday how lucky I am to be married to someone who though totally different than I, can understand my needs, no matter how silly or "unreal" they are. It makes me feel good to know that Jim acknowledges my need for make believe and magic, especially during this time of the year. Let's be honest, Jim is the more realistic half of our marriage. =) BUT--we have mixed both our families traditions into one that we will someday share with our children. It feels good.

Ode to Jim

O Christmas tree, O Christmas tree
How lovely are your branches
So full of sap we cannot see
How lovely are your branches
You're never straight on the first try
When you fall down we wonder why
O Christmas tree, O Christmas tree
Why do we even booooooooooother?

Please note: Once it's up and lovely, we love it. :)

I am tired of living in a place that can't anywhere near accurately predict the weather. My expectations were to awake and spend the day in a magical winterland with my dog, but alas...rain.
