I had to be creative this year when it came to our Christmas tree. We usually (and by usually I mean, last year…) use a small 4 foot fake tree that we acquired from my mother-in-law, however since all of our Christmas decorations are still in CT I had to come up with a different idea. So, as you can see, our tree this year is not of the evergreen, prickly, sticky type (or anything that might somewhat resemble that!). Instead, the leaves resemble the smooth and round and succulent leaves of my beloved Jade plant! Jade, as I affectionately named him, is a great stand-in in a pinch and he holds the lights rather well for his tender limbs, however an angel or a star will not work on his pinnacle. Oh well, Jade still spreads the holiday cheer!
