This year, I did not have enough time before the tree went up for the ex and I to go through and split up all of our ornaments. We will, eventually. However – I decided that for the first time ever – I would do a themed tree without my hodge-podge of ornaments. I decided to do peacock feathers with blue and green ornaments. LED star shaped lights and a big glittery blue bow.
I have started to realize that even though one is not used to doing things on their own outside of the habits and traditions they have set in place with their significant other, when that union is no longer there, that you wake up one day and start to define your own.
