Even though it’s warm and it truly feels like last April still (I can’t grasp that’s it’s almost the end of the year) I ventured out to get a Christmas tree to try and invite some holiday spirit into my cold, dark soul. I have some GREAT and hilarious memories of tree retrievals in the past. Let’s just take a little looksie back:
2011: It was me and Jackie at Lowe’s quite near by. I blasted Oh Christmas Tree from my car speakers – Jackie did all the work.
2012: I needed help getting my tree and the first person that popped in my mind, was Mark. He put the pedal to the medal and booked it to my house – we ventured over to Lowe’s and he helped me! I took this photo of him, one of my favorites and said that “my brother can beat up your brother.”
2013: In New York and Jesika and I When Harry Met Sally’d it together (minus Harry). Many laughs were had carrying that fresh cut tree the 8 blocks to my NYC apartment. I think it was snowing? Either way, NYC is the most magical this time of year. Loved coming home to this little tree.
2014: Jackie and I were at it again – this time at Costco. We really made the Costco tree employee laugh.
This year it was just me. I went to Lowe’s – the same one i’ve been to, and picked out my tree. I didn’t want one too big, small enough to ride shot gun (crying laughing):
Brought her home and puppy and I decorated her:
It’s still not beginning to feel a lot like Christmas, but hey, I’m trying.
