o christmas tree
I took an unintended vacation from this blog. I don't think I realized just how busy I would be at Christmas time with my new etsy shop! I'm definitely not complaining. But I will say I was very happy when the last packaged up order went into the hands of a postal worker. That was a good moment for me. And between hosting an open house, having my parents visit, and friends dropping by, it's been a very busy holiday season. I just finished shopping two days ago, and I haven't wrapped one solitary present.
But! We did get the tree a couple weeks ago, and that was a pretty great day! We found a farm about an hour away, and it was a real charmer. There was a historic log cabin on the property that was lovingly decorated, and there were trees galore to choose from. And most importantly, hot cocoa, cider and cookies for after your tree was felled.
I hope you're all having a beautiful holiday season. Our littles are finished with school, and Brian is finished with work for a while, so I'm a happy mama. Time to gather in close, make a few more Christmas treats, watch favorite movies, and drink cocoa by the fire. And I hope it's the same for all of you.
