st. louis and christmas trees


It is so nice to be back, in more ways than one.  After one of the craziest months I've had in years, I'm back in St. Louis and back to blogging.  Blogging is usually the first thing to go when life gets busy, but I really miss how it roots me.  It's been a great outlet for me, and a good motivator to try new projects, set goals, and push myself creatively with my photography.Now that life is slowly getting back to a new normal, I'm hoping I can blog more, but we'll see how it goes.  

It's also amazing to be back in St. Louis, my home city.  Settling in is taking some time, which is only natural for taking on such a big move with a family.  But I've got a feeling this is going to be a great, fresh start and ultimately a really good home for us.  It's a dream come true to be back here. 

Not only is it great to be with my family, but it's great to see Baby T with people who love him just as much as me and Paul do.     

Since being in St. Louis, we've had time to go on a couple Christmas adventures.  Like chopping down a Christmas tree!!  Last weekend we drove out to Meert Tree Farm Nursery to chop down our tree.  And then when we got there, we let my dad and brother do all the actual chopping.  

We picked out a really beautiful one that fit everybody's requirements (price range, height, freshness, good trunk).  We have it up in the house, but it's not decorated yet.  Which is oddly similar to how my life feels like right now -- a lot of stuff going right and being patient with things taking a little extra time to get all set up.  But it'll get there.  And it'll be pretty beautiful when it does.
