Up until now, our Christmas tree has been skirt-less. She’s either bared her bits to the world until presents arrive to cover her up – or settled for some fabric strategically placed around her “bottom.” Not anymore!
Let’s get a few questions out of the way right now:

- Yes, our tree is a room in need of serious lovin’
- Yes, those blinds are awful… we’ll be working on that in the new year (hopefully)
