i guess this is a post about a tree.

As soon as we pulled into the tree lot, I knew exactly what I wanted. A tall, skinny, sparse Charlie Brown tree. And I know I picked the right one, because when my mom saw it, she stood in front of it, hugged me and declared it the perfect tree.

It's hilarious to me that I live in a household now that uses a real tree. Growing up, our trees came in boxes. They broke into three easy-to-assemble pieces. They were strictly artificial and pre-lit. Except for one year when we were gifted a real tree. I think maybe because we were the "poor" family in the ward. But I could be remembering that wrong.

    1. This one was happily pretty low-maintenance! I just watered it once every few days and vacuumed up the needles...maybe twice? Then this afternoon I just chucked it out the front door haha no fuss!

  3. It is so, so beautiful. I love it! I miss the days when I had a real tree -- my family now has developed allergies. :( I love these dark yet somehow golden shots. Very special! ^_^ Happy New Year :)

    1. Well, that's a bummer. But fake trees are just as cheery. What isn't when it's covered in twinkly lights? Thanks, Erin!
