Merry Christmas & Happy Holidays!

We finally found some time to pick out a tree! This has been one of our busiest years, but we made time for one of our favorite traditions. Christmas is our favorite holiday and it wouldn’t be complete without a Christmas tree!

One of Peter’s favorite traditions growing up was going to the Christmas Tree Farm to pick out, cut down, and bring home a beautiful tree. Growing up, I never had a real tree. My family had a fake one because they were worried about a fire. I didn’t even know Christmas Tree Farms existed until our first Christmas together! We started this tradition again a few years ago and at first I was a little hesitant, but what is a relationship without compromise? For every real tree that he cuts down I get to plant one in its place.


We actually got a photo together! That never happens at the Tree Farm. Thank goodness for make-shift tripods out of wallets and self timers…


Yes! We started picking a tree when there was daylight and ended right after sunset… we never rush through this tradition. thousand_oaks_christmas_photos_0005
