Hallmark movies playing in the background.
Pecan bars and warm tea on the table.
A new tree adorns our living room,
Full of warm white lights and berries.
A woodland theme I chose this year.
New ornaments first, gently unwrapped,
Collected throughout the year.
Some homemade ones added in.
It looks full, but I want more,
Feeling somewhat sentimental still.
The boxes wait in the garage to go through.
Soon the boughs will bow full of the old and the new.
Transforming the house will follow too,
pretty little baubles catching the light,
Bringing us peace, hope, and happiness.
I wish I could make this time of the year last.
