Just outside our hometown is a tiny farming community that is home to the most darling Christmas tree farm; a picturesque family-owned, cash only place overflowing with charm and the best selection of trees around. We had the most fun date night picking out our first live Christmas tree as a couple (Cody’s had them his whole life; this is my first one), stringing it with lights and putting on the few of our very favorite ornaments we’ve managed to collect during our time together. Our tree is only 5 feet tall, but it is so perfect for our tiny home together. The evening was magic-the sun was setting, string lights flickering on one by one, and the air was cool and crisp. Accompanying the ambiance and perfect weather was that sweetly authentic feeling that only flutters across your heart as a new tradition is formed. These small traditions we build together are my favorite thing about the holidays, and this one is here to stay.
