ebb + flow :: tradition

The tree at our home has been lit for a week already but we had a other very important trees to tend to this past weekend in Chicago. For over 20 years my family and I have spent the Saturday after Thanksgiving making ornaments out of birdseed, marshmallow, peanut butter, oranges, and more and then decorating a couple trees (one large, one small) at my dad’s cemetery. It’s easily one of my favorite traditions of the season and I’m so glad we were able to make the trip again this year. Hope those critters are feasting well right about now!

    This just made my day. It’s such a special, although unusual, family tradition and one that your dad would/does relish with joy. He’s smiling down from above every time we get together, no matter what the occasion.
