|The boy and I have always
loved traveling, and since moving to the UK last year, we've been
fortunate to be able to go to all sorts of fun new destinations.
| As a result, we're always
finding weird foreign change in our pockets and drawers -- coins that
aren't worth all that much and for which we don't have much use, but
which we still can't quite bring ourselves to get rid of. This year, I
co-opted a few of these coins for the tree trimming. The biggest
challenge was figuring out a way to tie them up -- ribbon has a pesky
tendency to slide off circular shapes. In the end, I cheated a little by
securing the ribbon with a smidge of clear tape. The coins make nice
reflectors for the string lights, and serve as a happy reminder of some
of the cool places we've been to as well.
