ornaments for you and for me - my tree - oakland, ca
jon and i purchased our first christmas tree together at de lancey's christmas tree lot on broadway in oakland. their organization gives former convicts a chance at employment after incarceration. george, the man who spun several trees around for us in effort to find our fit, provided some of the best customer service i've encountered.
after a year of challenge and change, it was such a great feeling to witness what a bit of faith and hard work can lead to. a merry christmas it will be, indeed.
