There is something so warm and inviting about a real Christmas tree in the home, isn't there? I grew up going to the tree farm every year (in a much colder climate!), romping around in the snow, drinking the free hot chocolate, and picking THE perfect tree for dad to chop down. So when I first discovered that this was my in-laws' tradition, I knew I was part of the right family! There is something so satisfying about roaming through the maze of trees searching for the tree that will be yours. I think ours is perfectly lovely. Our first Christmas, our first Christmas tree.
