For years we have journeyed about 35 minutes west from our shore town to a Christmas tree farm in New Egypt, NJ.
There is something I find especially magical about Lone Silo Farm and in my eyes, no other place will do.
The past two years have been especially hectic and my husband has traveled here alone to cut down our tree.
He must have looked pretty sad and sorry to the families wandering around together.
Those days are behind us now and on Sunday we drove out there together to hunt down what is to be the masterpiece of our Christmas Decor.
There was some minor incidents where one child was annoying the other on the way out to the fields.
But if you irritate others you usually get what's coming to you.
Of course there are other ways to deal with unruly and disagreeable children.
After close to an hour of searching we found her!
Did you know that finding the perfect tree is in some ways similar to finding the perfect mate?
1. You have to make sure you can put up with them for an extended period of time.
2. You want to know if they will age well and NOT lose a lot of
3. Do they smell nice? This is VERY important.
4. When you dress them up, will they look amazing???
I love how solitary the silo looks from every angle.
As the men wrap the tree and help get it on top of the car there is hot cider waiting which just may be my favorite part.
Where do you get your tree?
