I want to remember this feeling forever.
In case anyone ever wonders why I love Brian with all my heart, this says it all.
We had to take down a healthy, beautiful pine due to a construction project (the road beside the house allowing us to get the tractor from the front yard into the back. This way we will be able to fix the wall that no contractor would touch because of no access).
Taking down living trees is something that hurts us to do. I stayed inside, mopey, doing housework and thinking of how I wasn't feeling in the mood to decorate or do much for the holidays.
I heard Brian knocking on the patio door and went over to see that he had dragged the top 15' of the tree (which was probably 60' to 70' tall) onto the deck and secured it. He told me we could "celebrate it" this way.
We will give it lights and things for the animals to enjoy.
In one gesture, he gave me Christmas. *wipes a tear stained face*
Here's a few more things I did with the boughs from this lovely pine.
