The story of the tree. We were still splitting our time between Chicago and Grand Rapids. The first Christmas in Chicago, we weren't going to have a Christmas tree. As we got closer to the holiday, we realized that our decision was a bad one. So we bought a tree at Ikea for a whopping $13. It reminds us of the little tree from Charlie Brown, a name dubbed by my colleague at work.
Now it is our Christmas tree. And we think it's beautiful.
