It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas at my little apartment :)

Ben and I went Christmas tree shopping for my apartment last night! It was SO much fun. This is the first time in my life where I have lived alone and had my own place to decorate. I have so many wonderful memories of putting up Christmas trees and decorations with my family and Christmas has been and always will be the greatest time of the year in my eyes. I have the fondest Christmas memories.

I contemplated not getting a tree because Ben and I will be driving to my Parent's the week before Christmas, so I didn't really see much sense in decorating if I'm not even going to be here. However, Ben was very adamant about getting a tree for my apartment. He stated that he was buying it, it was going to be real and we were going to decorate it together. Love him!

Needless to say, I'm very glad that he talked some sense into me!

Shopping for decorations/ornaments/ribbon etc.

A little dinner and cheers paired with some Dean Martin Christmas in the record player before we got started.

The finished product!

Us with our tree creation.

We had such a wonderful time together and I will always cherish the memory. I am so blessed and thankful. It's a good thing he loves Christmas as much (or maybe even a little bit more) than I do!

Merry Christmas!!!
