This is our first Christmas living together, and tonight we decorated the tree. Since I come to this partnership with all the Christmas decorations, and Mike comes to the relationship with all the video game systems, all of the decorations on the tree are mine. And so, most of them are Scandinavian-inspired, thanks to my Danish heritage.

For example, nissa men. These are Scandinavian elves, which have been at the center of my Christmas traditions for as long as I can remember.

Also, the Swedish dala horses. I found this duo a couple years ago at a local thrift store, which was a huge score!

The pug is not Scandinavian. He is just adorable.

God Jul!
