OK, so I’m not fluent in Spanish, but Christmas has been on my mind during the month of October. And instead of saying Merry Christmas, Feliz Navidad, sounds cooler some how.
So here is the story of my stint with Macy’s and their Christmas trees. With lots of photos of trees that I decorated.
Hi, my name is Katie and I decorate Christmas trees. I have been decorating Christmas trees during the whole month of October. I feel like I’m confessing something. It seems like I was at a different Macy’s everyday but I really wasn’t. Just 11 stores.
And thanks to my friend Ralph, I had such a great experience doing something that I had never dreamed of before. In the midst of burn out from travel, not enough sleep, and too much glitter, I had the best time. Now I have only the best memories. And three days after I had decorated my last tree, I found myself at the Macy’s Holiday Lane, looking at the trees that I had decorated. And I was ready to do it again next year.
Thank you to all of my friends, my husband, and kids for letting me have some grown up fun working and earning a paycheck. Thanks for letting me be a working mom. It has made me appreciate being a stay at home mom. Te amo.
