Moving this past weekend has really put a damper on my Christmas festivities. Jason was amazing and knew I wanted to have my tree up right away, so we went and picked out our first real tree last Tuesday and brought it to our new condo. I had a real tree growing up until I was about 10 but ever since have only had artificial. The past two years have been special since I have had my grandparents tree but this year we knew we wanted the real deal. We went to a lot in Chicago and learned how outrageously expensive they are and ended up at Home Depot where we picked out the perfect tree. I'm not going to lie, I was originally pretty disappointed going to Home Depot for a tree but in reality, it just adds to the city-living feel. :) I love that we'll be able to laugh at that in years to come.
Last night we were able to decorate the tree and hang our stockings. I absolutely love our tree! I wonder where it came from and how old it is. I hope someday we can go cut down a tree but this year our Home Depot tree is exactly what we wanted.
