Advent Blog-a-long #1 – welcome!

Many years ago I had one of my crazier ideas to attempt a Blog-a-long for Christmas. The busiest month of the year and I committed on my little known blog that I was about to blog every single day in the lead up to Christmas.

That was back in 2008, when my daughter was 18 months old. Each year for 8 years I did the blog-a-long counting down my favourite days of the year and then in 2015 I just stopped.

Rach has continued the tradition and convinced me to start it again. So this month we are committing to blogging every day leading up to Christmas. And as an added bonus we are both doing it on our personal blogs!

JOIN US! We would love to have you join us in the silly season and count down the days on your own blog (if you have one) be sure to let us know so we can pop by and give you some comment love!

As I was meandering down memory lane, the first year I had posted about the Christmas tree my husband and I purchased way back in 1998 when we moved in together. I described it as the biggest tree I could buy within budget. It lasted a few more years after that and was switched out for a dodgy Kmart ombre tree. It seems fitting that my first post here is to share the NEW tree I purchased. This time bigger budget and a threat to go all “Clark Griswold” which I nearly achieved!

Helping me assemble the tree (which was like an IKEA nightmare) was our ministry assistant (HQ) who joins us every Friday when we record. Unsure if she’s as impressed as me.
