Trimming the tree

This has been an incredibly busy month. Like I honestly feel like I'm on the verge of a breakdown. It all started one night when Ben was casually browsing mls looking at houses to buy...when he came across one he was interested in. So we went and had a look at it the next day. We do this regularly, we're ALWAYS on the lookout. But this one seemed to work for both of us so we decided it was time to sell out house. So we started the process of getting our house ready, which has turned out to be WAY more than we ever expected. There were quite a few things we had to do to get it up to code (we bought it as a foreclosure and there were a few funny things about it that weren't serious, but could be a hurdle when selling). Then we had to get our finances in order which has turned out to be more difficult than expected. Apparently they are making things very tough for self employed borrowers. Anyway...in the middle of this we decided to tag along with friends to cut down a Christmas tree....straight out of the forest. Not some fancy tree farm. So it is quite the tree. It's gorgeous and imperfect and makes my heart so happy! But because of the craziness of life we just got around to decorating it this week. The kids had a blast and although it's not as perfect looking as my other trees it just feels so magical. And thank goodness for that because the rest of the house remains undecorated...which is SOOOO unlike me!!
