Since Joe and I have been married we have always had “live” Christmas trees. Our first Christmas together we decorated our house plant, affectionately named Norbert II. Our second Christmas together we decorated our Redwood sapling that we bought for our first anniversary. Both plants have died and so we have been looking for a replacement tree. During Thanksgiving we got inspiration from visiting a high end Christmas store. We decided the design of the tree was easy enough that we could make our own version. So we did.
