I did not WANT an outdoor Christmas tree this year…I NEEDED one!
This was my present to myself this year. We planted this evergreen tree 20 years ago, when we first moved in, and I used to decorate it with colorful lights every Christmas. Then it finally grew too tall for my husband to manage, so it has remained dark the last few years.
I finally treated myself and had a professional come out to trim the tree, and now I get to see from my kitchen and/or living room window every night. WORTH IT.
