I’m not much for decorating for holidays… I actually think its kind of nuts lol. But, every year so far, when I finally get up my tree I’m always really glad that I did it. There’s just something about it that really does make a person strangely content and happy. It will be me and Lodi’s first Christmas together. One weekend we put up my little tree (our first tree) and it was incredibly special. In true millennial fashion though it also included The Good Place TV show, alcohol, a lot of passionate I love yous mixed with very creative cursing and absolutely no Christmas music whatsoever.
