Every year Ross and I go to Beech Ridge Farm to chop down our Christmas tree (here is last year’s recap). I love traditions during the holidays, so we plan on keeping this up. Though I get rather sentimental this time of year, I am still a bit of a Christmas nazi. It MUST be the perfect tree and the ornaments MUST be perfectly arranged. It has to be pretty!
After strapping it to the top of our little car we carefully made our way home and put it up. After some meticulous decorating (Ross quit after I re-positioned too many of the ornaments he placed), here is the final result!
Ta da! I love for my Christmas trees to look somewhat similar every year. You’ll never catch me with a “themed” tree that changes every Christmas. Not that there’s anything wrong with it, I just like putting up old and new family heirlooms each and very year. There’s something comforting about it.
If you celebrate Christmas, do you chop down your own tree? It’s so much fun, plus it stays fresher so much longer than one that was cut down a month ago.
