As a child my family always got a live Christmas tree. I have many memories of going out with my parents to select and cut down our tree. When my husband and I were first married we also cut down our own tree. But when we had our first child we decided to switch to a fake pre-lit tree. And while I LOVE the ease, I miss the experience of a real tree.
This year my Mom asked us to go with her to choose her tree. As we were walking through the tree farm I saw the sunlight streaming through the trees as 3 generations searched for the perfect tree. I’m so grateful for this chance to begin a new family tradition!
