For the past three years, my boyfriend, his parents and I have had a tradition of heading up to rural Connecticut to cut down our Christmas tree at Maple Row Tree Farm. We drove up last Saturday through the winding wooded roads with our dog in tow to find the perfect tree. This is my favorite time of the year so it is a ritual that I definitely look forward to all year round. The past two years have been particularly exciting, because we have been able to pick our own fir tree for our apartment. The air was brisk and the clouds were billowy and moody, allowing for some snowflakes to swirl past us as we found our tree.
