A few of my Blogging BFFs and I were talking about our trees and trimmings, etc. and decided that we should share what is special about our trees. What first came to mind is Dixie. Dixie is the mother-in-law of one of my dearest friends in the world. Every year Dixie makes a ton of ornaments for her three daughters and my friend (and maybe others too), to give away to their friends and family. I look forward to seeing her newest … [Read more...]
