It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas


Last year, right after we moved in, we put up my parent’s tree in the bay window. It was magical and helped our sparsely furnished new home feel a little bit more homey for the holidays. Right after Christmas, I scoured Craigslist for a 7+ foot tall tree for the bay window for this year. Our ceilings are 9 feet, so the area can handle a substantial tree.


We bought a lovely tree from a guy off Craigslist for just $30 that we estimate would retail for over $100. It’s not pre-lit, but we actually prefer that because if part of the lights we can easily replace them for $5, not have to replace the entire tree or go through hundreds of bulbs to find the culprit. Ain’t nobody got time for that.
