Christmas Tree Adventure / Personal / Natural Intuition Photography

Personal

Justin and I got our Christmas Tree a few weeks ago – beating the cold spell that we have been having. This was only our 2nd time getting a real tree for our home, the last apartment we lived in would not allow real trees so we had a thin fake one. I was SOOOO excited to put up a real one, and cut it down!

We went to a place that is ran by a wonderful family near Lake Dubay – and they had be hooked when I saw their website and ready this —

“Tree sales helped kickoff a campaign to raise awareness and over $32,000 for the A-T Children’s Project. Past sales have benefited The Salvation Army, Portage County Youth on Ice, Head Start and Redeemer Lutheran Church Holiday baskets. Pheasant Pines also participates in Adopt-A-Highway program”

The joy I get from my Christmas Tree spreads so much farther than my living room! And I LOVE the fact that they use earth friendly pesticides and use minimal fertilizer – they are not the perfect trees you see in most lots and that is yet another thing that I LOVE about the Tree Farm. It is also a Pheasant Farm, and the pheasants are roaming free – and yes I did want to take one home with me!

Justin and I bundled up for our adventure, and when we got there we had a great chat with the owner, and he told us where to go, and how to find the trees we were looking for. Justin and I walked a ways to find the tree we wanted – I found one I really wanted, and so did he – BUT …. I wanted a HUGE massively tall tree, and he was a little one. We compromised with a 7 some foot tall Blue Spruce, BEAUTIFUL!

We had to be careful walking to make sure we didn’t step on any newly planted trees : )

I giggle when I see this photos – because Justin said while we were walking and dragging the tree that ” a trip with a photographer takes twice as long ” HA it’s so true! We stop and enjoy the little things!

Monday Motivation kick fear in the ass
Motivation to kick start your week You're either a Monday person or your not. If you're anything like me, you aren't. This year I started something that I am so happy I did. Monday's are NO MEETINGS, NO SESSIONS days. It's the day I get caught up with paperwork, editing, blogging and updates to my clients. So far it has been so good for my soul and business. I don't hate Monday's anymore, I actually look forward to them. But, I know not everyone can do this - so I am going to hopefully kickstart your week to help you feel better about them. (at least a little) As a small business owner, the #1 thing that holds us (at least me) back is fea ...

9/11/2001 | We Will Not Forget
September 11, 2001 | my senior year Today is a day that we all remember where we were, how we felt - anger, confusion, and sadness. We wanted someone to blame, and I am not going to get political on this but we did! Why would someone whoever it was, do something like this? I remember that day so well - I left for school and turned on the radio, all I heard was news! A plane crashed. All I could think though was, just another plane crash. Sadly enough. Then when I got to school no one said anything about it till I was walking down the halls my senior year of high school. Collecting attendance slips for that period, and I got to a class room a ...
