Our weather was beautiful on Saturday! The bright blue skies and crisp air were perfect for our tree tagging adventure. This was our first year tagging a Christmas tree, but I think it is safe to say it won't be our last. We all had a great time.
It was so nice to just get out of the house and do something fun as a family. Ever since the pandemic our family adventures have been severely limited. All of our traditional autumnal adventures have either been cancelled or hold an exposure risk that we are not willing to accept. It was fun to get out of the house, unplug, and just have fun.
After strolling through the vast tree farm for nearly 90 minutes, we finally selected our perfect tree. It is large, probably close to 9 feet, and features full branches without bald spots. We applied our sold labels, decorated it to help stake our claim, and began to anticipate returning next month to bring it home.
Yesterday our weather was not nearly as pleasant. The remnants of a tropical storm blew through our area, bringing winds and heavy rain. I took the opportunity to knock out some work projects and to clean the house. I'm hoping that I set the stage for a reduced stress week.
Fingers crossed it is a good week!
