There is nothing better than the moment December 1st rolls around and it's officially time to buy a Christmas tree. The smell of fresh pine in the cold winter air is so refreshing (there really is nothing better!) The needles are so soft and hang my most delicate and memorable ornaments, and the healthy dark geen branches always seem to give life to my home in the dead of winter. I just love the moment when I can buy a tree and bring it home to decorate (while I sing and dance to xmas tunes). Ya, just accept it, we all do it!
But this year, it's all just a tease as I walk by my local Christmas tree vendor watching all the happy families pick out their favourite tree. This year is all about driving the 9 longest hours of my life down the 401 to see the family, as I left my small town city just over 5 years ago. That is what happens when you are the one to leave the nest, you must sacrifice holidays and vacation to go back to the hometown, since really, it will always be home. So enjoy putting up your tree this year and sing an extra song for me! By the way, what is topping my Christmas charts this year is Zooey Deschanel and her new album A Very She & Him Christmas. Check it out, you will love it, I promise!
