I'll admit, I'm not one for traditions. I guess I'm more of a rule breaker and anything is possible, follow your heart, believe in your dreams, and oh just go for it kinda person. I get bored and like things to be different and new and fun! However, there is one thing that is a tradition for me...Christmas ornaments.
You see David and I have been together since 1989. Each year in September, we purchase a new ornament for our tree. An ornament to celebrate another year together. So to date, we have 22 ornaments. However this year, on September 21st, we celebrated our 20th wedding anniversay.
We always go to the store, purchase an ornament and then go out for dinner to celebrate. But this year, we got two ornaments!
Then I spotted this ornament! Ok...yeah, yeah, the bunny got my attention, but then I saw "Love Grows" and it reminded me how love does grow over the years when you are married to your best friend. The love you knew when you dated and the love you know 22 years later is a love that has grown.
David and I were married in 1991 and this was the Hallmark keepsake ornament then! Hellooooooooo fabulous! Happy bunny dance! Isn't it perfect?!? I put a bid on it and won!
So yes, my tree is filled with lots of love and I'll share some more ornaments with you over the next week.
Finally, I want to show you a wonderful and thoughtful gift I received from my friend, Christine of Rabbit Tidbits. Christine is one of those people that I wish I lived close to. She too is a bunny mama and has had bunnies that have had special needs. She volunteers at a rabbit rescue and has a whole lot of love for these fuzzy creatures that touch our hearts.
Christine sent me this beautiful card and this fantabulous cookbook! This book was put together by the sweet folks at Heartland Rabbit Rescue to raise money for the bunnies that they help. It's all vegetarian recipes and hello...since I'm a vegetarian, it's perfect!
Thank you so much Christine! If you would like to give a gift of love this Christmas, you can always make a donation to folks that have lots of love in their hearts for fuzzy, little critters that can't speak for themselves. Click here to visit Heartland Rabbit Rescue. Tell them Christine sent you!
