It’s finally December, so we can post about Christmas, right? This year, we didn’t want to waste any time that could be spent celebrating the holiday. On the Saturday after Thanksgiving, Dan and I arrived at our local farm early to continue our tradition of cutting down our own Christmas tree!
Speaking of traditions, I contributed to Two Drifters’ Christmas in New England post where I wrote about our favorite Christmas traditions in New England! Check out the post, here.
We have never been to this farm before, so we were surprised to see how much larger it was compared to the farm we went to last year. You could definitely get lost here if you weren’t careful. Since we arrived early, we had hundreds of trees to pick from!
For the holidays, Dan and I love to incorporate flannel into our outfits. Rather than doing the obvious, which is to wear flannel shirts, we had cute accessories custom-made locally by Laura at The Maine Square. She did a fabulous job!
Dan’s bow tie is a green plaid with red accents and metal hooks to adjust the size. Whereas my scarf, which I used as a headband, is mainly red with green accents. So, we still match but it’s subtle and definitely Christmas-y!
If you know me, you’ll know that I love anything personalized like my beach bag shown here. Since Laura’s accessories are all custom-made, she was more than happy to monogram my bandana. Look closely and you can see my initial “K” embroidered on one end while the other has an anchor. How special!
Now back to Christmas tree shopping, I’m not sure why I would be trusted with this hand saw.
Of course, I stumbled upon a fallen branch of pine needles that had turned into this really pretty orangey rust color and so I had to pick it up. I wish my hair was this color but I don’t think I can pull off being a ginger.
We found our tree! As you might have guessed, Dan sawed it down for us. We vlogged our experience but you know me, I haven’t found time to edit the video yet. Since this is a seasonal activity, I will try and post it asap! *Crosses fingers that it gets put up in December*
Last year, we picked a super prickly tree that hurt whenever we placed new ornaments on it, so we were really happy to find this much softer tree to take home this year! I couldn’t stop touching it but at the same time I was getting sap all over my hands, haha.

Do you celebrate Christmas? If so, have you gotten a tree?
We received our accessories complimentary at The Maine Square but as always, my opinions are my own.
