In the past month or so since the Christmas decorations have been out in stores, (does it seem like it goes up earlier every year!?) I've been searching for a "First Christmas Together" ornament to commemorate the end of our long-distance. There were a lot of wedding cake ornaments, and while Mr. D and I are technically married, none of those felt right.
Finally, during a random Etsy browing session today, I found the perfect ornaments! And, they're made by a seller who is not a stranger to Weddingland: Paloma's Nest.
I love all of them, but the bottom right is my favorite. Not only is it beautiful, but the symbolism is understated yet still meaningful. It's definitely going to be a treasured keepsake in the Doxie househould around Christmastime for years to come!
I'm glad that the search for the perfect first ornament had a happy ending; I can't wait to get it and hang it on our tree!
What did you/are you doing to celebrate your first holiday season together? Did you find the perfect ornament, gift or tradition to commemorate the occasion?
