Oh Christmas tree, Oh Christmas tree!
Me and Phil got our very first Christmas tree together. It's actually Phil's first Christmas tree, as in ever. I am so glad we are bringing this tradition into our home! Celebrating Christmas as a family is very important to me. I have such fond memories as a kid of decorating our Christmas tree as a family while listening to Nat King Cole sing Christmas carols. Simply the best.
We decided we wanted to get a live tree and I'm so glad because I loooove how they smell! Oh my. Fresh Christmas trees smell so good! It smells like happy.
We went down to the Christmas tree farm to pick out our perfect tree. There were so many! It was quite the task as most of the picture perfect ones were already tagged or taken.
After searching and searching we finally found the perfect tree.
My manly Mr. van der Wel chopped it down without any help. He's pretty good at stuff. I love him. A lot.
Then we brought it back to our cute little car to take our tree home. I love the holidays!
Disclaimer: It is really strange trying to adjust to the fact that it's summer here during Christmas. It doesn't entirely feel like Christmas to me because it's so warm. But I will admit that searching for a Christmas tree and not being super freezing is kind of nice. Still, it will take some time for me to adjust entirely.
