Don't judge the swollen face. ;)

He had to have one mitten off so that he could touch all the trees.

Here we go!


Timber!!! It’s a word that is shouted every year as our freshly cut Christmas tree begins to fall to the ground.

Every year since Jordan and I have been married, we spend the Saturday after Thanksgiving cutting down a Christmas tree; it’s a tradition that we are carrying down from his childhood. Growing up we always had artificial trees. I had no clue what I was missing until I started dating Jordan. Nothing beats the smell of a fresh cut Christmas tree filling your home throughout the holidays.

This year we had to travel about an hour south to find a nursery that had Fraser Fir Christmas trees that we could cut down on our own. Previously we spent each year at Wilfong’s Christmas Tree Haven, but they have recently limited their sales to precut trees and after this year they will be completely closed. I was devastated to learn my recently new tradition with my hubby was over. That’s ok though….new traditions are always fun to begin and this year was the year.

We left mid-morning to head down to Hensler’s Nursery Christmas Fest. It was a chilly morning and I was feeling less the well {aka I was feeling like poo}. I had just gotten over walking pneumonia to wake up Thanksgiving week with THE worst sinus infection EVER. I was absolutely miserable, hence the not so attractive swollen face and the lack of pictures involving me during our visit. ;)

Hensler’s was wonderful! It was like a little Christmas town and they had tons of great trees to cut down. Mrs. Claus was so friendly, they had yummy homemade treats to devour, beautiful fresh wreaths to purchase, and Santa Claus was quite a sight to be seen (family, you know what I mean…hahah). I was thrilled about our new tradition despite feeling like poo.

I’m already looking forward to next year! 
Merry Christmas lovelies!
