It’s Beginning To Feel A Lot Like Christmas

The holidays sure snuck up on us this year, didn’t they? For no good reason, I felt very behind when we started decorating this weekend. But now, it finally feels a lot like Christmas in our apartment.

On Sunday we headed out to Maple Row Tree Farm in Easton, CT to pick out and cut down our very own tree. It took us about 45-minutes but we found the perfect tree. Ben sawed it down himself and we tied it to the car. It’s a miracle that we did not try to kill one another during this process.

Our tree is a little fatter than we had planned for but I think it looks wonderful. We are slowly building up our collection of ornaments. Every year my Granny gives me one or two for Christmas. Last year my Mom passed down some of my personalized ones from growing up. Ben and I try to pick out an ornament from our travels. The nutcracker below is from our trip to Montreal this past summer.
