Cutting Down Our Tree

Cutting down our own Christmas tree is my favorite tradition of the year with Travis. He and his family cut their own tree down most years for Christmas when he was growing up, and I had never done it before he and I started dating. And you guys, not only is it super fun, but our tree stays alive and healthy so much longer than the ones you pick up at the tree lots do! Huge win! Plus you get to dress in your favorite lumberjack-inspired gear for the outing :)

Jeans: H&M

And look, we even brought my sis and her bf along: 

Do you guys cut down your own trees? What are your favorite tree picking & decorating traditions?
