    25 Days of Christmas Trees Day 22

    My kitchen tree is 100% fun for me. It all started when we were in Montreal. I saw a fondue pot ornament and it hit me how great it would be to have a kitchen tree. The fondue was meaningful because we always had fondue on New Year’s Eve. So I bought the ornament and … Read more
