{camp cozy} day four: finding our tree

i am so happy that {camp cozy} is now filled with the smell of sweet fresh pine.

the lovely little town where we live has a gazillion local family tree farms, and we visited one on saturday to find our tree...

the tree we chose is a small douglas fir and looks simply beautiful in our treehouse.

we brought it home and draped it in white lights.

it creates a wonderful glow in the mornings while we are getting ready for school and in the evenings while we are snuggled up in the blustery rain.

it will be lovingly adorned with decorations later this week.

You guys officially have the BEST tree-finding faces! No real trees here, but I'm looking forward to finally buying a fake one and making it feel like Christmas despite the heat - the past few years I just haven't gotten into the Christmas spirit since it's summer, so this year I want to try.

well this has got to be the cutest darn thing i've seen in awhile! so happy to have stumbled across your swell blog.

i envy your real tree goodness too, our building only allows for the artificial versions unfortch. i tend to use overdoses of pine spray everywhere to make believe were living the cypress dream ; )

love your blog! ♥
