The beginning of December heralds my annual trek with my husband to cut down a fresh smelling Christmas Tree. Frasier Firs are my favorite, but this year we have a lovely Balsam cut from our friends' property. For me, nothing less than a real tree will do and I love tromping around the woods or a tree farm looking for that special tree that speaks to me. You know, those trees really want the honor of coming home to be decorated! LOL.
