We do almost zero shopping on our trips – I’d much rather spend the money on amazing food, unique experiences and nice hotels. But, we make it a point to seek out one Christmas ornament from each place we visit for our tree in the den. I was looking for something else in the guest room closet this morning when I found our stash from 2017. It was so much fun to look back on our travels.
Butterfly ball from Dollywood
Palmetto tree from Columbia, South Carolina
Skyline ball from Denver, Colorado
Bird house from Rock City in Chattanooga, Tennessee
Grand Ole Opry ball from Nashville, Tennessee
Peabody duck from Memphis, Tennessee
Silver Maple Leaf from Mount Snow, Vermont
Disney Wonder ship from the Disney Social Media Moms Celebration cruise
Kate Spade silver gift bow from New York
We started our ornament collection on our honeymoon and have been adding to it for 15 years. Pulling them out every year is such a treat, as well as a trip down memory lane.
I have noted either on every ornament or on the box what year it was from.
This is just one of a thousand reasons why I so look forward to pulling out the Christmas bins each year! I’d love to know if there is something special YOU collect on your trips!!
