For the past million Christmases, I have been dying to cut down a live Christmas tree. Unfortunately for me, I have never been in the position to pay/bribe a man to come with and do the heavy chopping/lifting for me.
Enter Mr. RH.
I told him several weeks ago that I had a loong list of Christmas-y Activities that I wanted to complete this year and then I might have cried into my wine saying that we never get enough time together.
I had the flu on Monday so our original tree-cutting plans got scrapped - but fortunately, yesterday was the perfect day! It had snowed 6 inches the night before, but for an odd twist of fate there was no snow at the tree-cutting-farm. (Which turned out to be a stroke of GREAT luck.)
We hiked ourselves to the middle of nowhere to Miller's Tree Farm (Idaville, IN). The place was recommended by one of my dad's coworkers and I can't say I was disappointed. The people were nice and they had a TON of trees for the choosing.
I can't believe I picked one and we got it down in under an hour. I could have browsed for days!
We finally got the tree down and then I dragged it to the car.
We browsed the gift shop for delicious snacks and I was jealous of all the cute Christmas paraphernalia.
And then Mr. RH and I packed the 7 foot tree into the Jetta and drove home with the trunk open. A perfect adventure for our first Christmas together.
Can't wait to get busy trimming that tree! I feel like I'm behind, it's already December 1st!
