We’ve never had a star for our tree. We’ve always used a bow that’s got to be over five years old that neither of us have ever liked it. We’ve browsed for angels but none of them quite struck a chord. They’re always either creepy or cheap.
This year Jake bit the bullet and picked one out while buying our tree. It was a lovely clear Martha Stewart star with silver on it. It was truly beautiful. The only problem was that it was clear and you couldn’t see it.
We managed to switch it out with a red snowflake that Gwyneth insisted on.
She waited patiently while Jake tweaked a few branches to make it as less crooked as we can manage, then finally she got to help put the star on top.
And now you can see it at all times.
