and my favorite holiday decoration is one that goes in my room. My great aunt Rubie made this for my Nanny. My mom inherited it, and then gifted it to me. I tresure it more than just about anything.

JWoo: I have one too. It was my moms and she gave it to me last year. The base is cracked and the star is broken off the top. But it holds such great memories! I called my grandmother “Nanny” too 🥰

A VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS to everyone!

Let me know when y’all plan to meet up again. I’ll try my best to make it.
