Lost Forty Tree Farm

Chris and I easily agree on most things, but real Christmas tree vs fake is one thing that wasn’t as easy. I was adamantly for getting a real tree, and Chris was adamantly against it, but I eventually swayed him with all the perks I was selling: Going to the tree farm! Chopping down your own tree! The scent! The authenticity!

Chris was still skeptical about getting a real tree until we got to nearby Lost Forty Tree Farm, which was snow-covered and beautiful on Saturday afternoon when we went. We had a blast walking around the farm, searching for our perfect tree, and sawing it down once we found it.

We ended up getting a gorgeous, 10-foot-tall Eastern White Pine that looks simply regal in our house! Here’s our tree out in the field:
