minimal christmas {still + life}

These pictures were taken about an hour apart yesterday morning. 7:10 and 8:30. Ish. After I took the first Neel and I looked at the tree and both liked it so much with just the lights. Neel said, maybe just the lights and the star? Could we do just that?

So I opened the first box of ornaments and there was the star, right on top. A sign. I felt a little clutch when I saw the garland that Callum and I made when we was just wee and we were living in San Diego, but we held firm and here we are. Lights and a star. That's it.

You guys.....??? Can we do that? Just lights and a star? Really? Is it, you know, okay? Will Santa still come?
