Like this ornament and musical globe that my dear husband and I received as wedding gifts.
Or these stockings and nativity set given to us by my dear mother-in-law.
Each object tells a story of a place in time, and a person so dear to us. Being able to pass these stories onto my son, and hopefully, someday, his children, is what makes putting up the decorations special to me.
I hope everyone is able to share their stories with the ones they love.
