Todays was one of the most important days in December – the day we bring home our Christmas tree. In recent years we may not have cut down the tree ourselves every time, but as self respecting Oregonians we have always gone to a tree farm to pick it up! This year was colder than usual, but it was beautiful and I was happy because it was the first time I’ve been home to pick out the tree since high school.
Fun fact: did you know that Oregon is the no. 1 producer of Christmas trees? We love our trees (I wanted to link to an Oregon tourism commercial that said “Do you like trees? Visit Oregon” But I couldn’t find it. Sad day. You’ll have to imagine it.).
