12 Dates of Christmas, Bonny Doon

Christmas kickoff

This year feels extra magical for some reason. Maybe it’s the cold, raining mornings, or smell of fires burning in chimneys in our neighborhood. Who knows. If you don’t already know, Rob gets pretty excited about Christmas. He’s sort of like Mr. Christmas – he kept calling this past weekend the “Christmas Kickoff” . . . getting our tree, putting up lights, Christmas movies, baking cookies, etc. To help us get in the holiday spirit {even more than we already are}, I thought we’d do the famous 12-dates of Christmas. If you’re a blogger you may have seen this fad in the blogosphere. It’s great for couples or friends!

The first date of Christmas is to pick out a tree & decorate it. So, we did. Over the weekend we went to the Crest Ranch Christmas Tree Farm up in Bonny Doon. It was life-changing. They had SO many kinds of trees, even one that looked quite beachy.





We got that baby home and started decorating. Not a minute went by without us obsessing over how wonderful it smelt.We promised each other we’d never put up a fake tree again.

Are you a fake or real tree person?
