This year we visited a tree farm near our very first home up in Arlington, WA. It was raining. But it was awesome. We got a wonderful tree and a great photo for the Christmas card this year!
The mister and I were reminiscing on the way home about our very first Christmas together. He didn't see the importance of having a tree for just the two of us. I wanted him to want to get one for me without actually saying, "Babe, I want you to get a tree for me." This story ended with me scrounging up a couple of evergreen branches and hanging them from the ceiling, intended to be an "I'll show him" moment (obviously, I do not shine in this walk through nostalgia). His reaction? "Whoa, what an awesome idea! We should hang branches from the ceiling every year!" Alas, not what I was hoping for. Glad to say, we smile thinking about that first Christmas together. Two kiddos later, it just gets sweeter every year.
This year, with the girls at a great age to enjoy the whole process, was one of the best yet. We found a sprightly little tree and enjoyed some Five Guys before heading home. Hope you all enjoy your tree gathering experiences, too!
Merry Christmas from all of us!
