I love flowers and I adore fresh Christmas trees. It’s watching them die and throwing them away that tugs at me a bit; but all things are impermanent and the joy of the Christmas tree tradition is so beautiful and special to me that I disregard the absurdity and waste of it.
$15 for a beautiful tree care of a local you-cut, small, family tree farm that’s pesticide free. Which just means it comes with extra spiders. Lol
We love it!! The girls and I all took turns sawing it down. The simple joys of life. Sometimes in moments like these the holidays fill my heart with so much happiness. Tia made hot chocolate. I’m making baked potatoes with all the fixings for dinner.
Life is exceedingly good sometimes. I am so very truly, deeply thankful.
