What are you up to this weekend? We’ve got holiday parties, gift making, and card sending to look forward to. Last weekend, to get into the Christmas spirit, we went on a little adventure to find our first married Christmas tree!
Since it’s our first Christmas as Mr. and Mrs., we decided to do something a little more special than pick a tree from the Kroger parking lot. So we headed out in the country to Bluebird Christmas Tree Farm in Heiskell, Tennessee to chose and cut our own tree.
Though it was a cold and overcast day, it was so much fun to get to wander around and see all the beautiful trees. It brought back such joyful memories of childhood when my family used to visit local farms to pick a tree.
Another wonderful thing about visiting a Christmas tree farm are the choices! Who knew there were so many beautiful varieties of trees to choose from?
Of course there is the traditional Frasier Fir, also known as the “Cadillac of Christmas Trees.”
My team was not so impressed by the Caddies. Beautiful, but we wanted something a little different from the norm. (sidenote: Frasier Firs grow best in higher altitudes, so Bluebird Farm brings them in fresh daily from a friendly farm in North Carolina).
Next we had lovely Leyland Cypress.
Finally, our favorite was the unique yet beautiful Arizona Cypress.
