O’ Christmas tree
O’ Christmas tree
What happiness befalls me.
This year for our Christmas tree, we decided to do something a little different. We typically have an artificial tree that we put up year after year, but a couple of days before Christmas last year, all of the lights suddenly went out, so a new plan it was for 2017. Of course, we kind of forgot that we needed a new tree until we were ready to start decorating this year, so we started looking for a replacement but couldn’t find anything that we loved. My sister suggested that we go out to their farm and make a little family adventure out of it. She had seen a couple of trees that she thought might be the right size for our family.
One Sunday morning in early December, We decided to get dressed, grab some Starbucks and roam around the property. It was so cold, so I dressed in a super warm sherpa jacket, jeans, boots and added a little glitz to my outfit with these Sugar Fix earrings. We ended up finding the perfect sized noble fir. I honestly thought that after having an artificial tree, I would never go through the hassle of getting a fresh one again, but this year reminded me that a new adventure and memories are definitely worth the little bit of extra effort. We got to adventure around the property with our family, get our boots a little muddy, take some photos and watch the boys cut down a tree that we were going to take home and decorate. It was also really nice to be reminded that everything doesn’t have to be so instant all of the time. Whenever we felt like decorating we knew we could just pull our box out of storage and get started. This year we had to plan a bit more and put in some extra effort and it turned into one of our favorite Christmas memories. What have been some of your favorite memories from this holiday season?
