My Favorite Christmas Tradition

Sunday, December 8, 2013
I don't have much of anything against fake trees. 
I mean they're pretty convenient actually, especially of you get the pre lit ones and just pull it out of the box all ready to decorate.
However, my heart is set on real trees.
We have gotten a real tree for as long as I can remember.
My absolute favorite part of it is going with my dad to pick "the one" out.
We usually get hot chocolate or apple cider and shop around until the most perfect tree catches our eye.
We judge every pine needle and spin it around to make sure there aren't any awkward holes.
We try to picture it in our living room with shiny packages underneath.
Once it passes all the tests, we're sold.
I love the smells it brings into our home, the way the lights twinkle among the ornaments, and the fact that it is my job to water it.
I love this tradition, and I love real trees

I hope your holiday season is spectacular!

All my love,
Aleigh Joy
