This past weekend we cut down our first real tree! Last year we wanted to get a permit to cut one down, but we missed the day to get the permit so we made sure this year we got one. It was so much fun! We hiked up the side of a mountain and found our tree. I felt so outdoorsy! I have always loved real trees because it brings back memories of being little and going to the tree lot with my dad. Finding and cutting down our own made it that much more magical! We want to make it a yearly tradition.
