We’ll very likely be doing our annual family trek to the tree farm this weekend and I’m actually really excited about getting our house decorated for Christmas! I wasn’t so sure that I would be after decorating at the shop (and un-decorating then redecorating again…but I’ll fill you in more on that at a later date ;) and being surrounded by ornaments so early in the season. But I took the dog for a walk a couple of nights ago and the crisp chill, sparkling lights and smell of woodsmoke in the air were the perfect combination to get me in the holiday spirit all over again. Do you get a fresh tree each year like we do? These outdoorsy images I found over at Kinfolk made me think I could almost smell the fresh-cut scent of pine…

Whether it be the real deal or artificial, it doesn’t quite feel like Christmas around here until the tree is up. My kids are excited about everything to do with the holidays, especially getting started on our advent calendar. I’ll be sure to post some pictures and a list of the activity notes that I’ll be tucking into each day. Hope your week is going well!
