Every year me and my family travel to the mountains in North Carolina to find ourselves a Christmas tree on a Christmas tree farm. Every time we go I’ve always loved how gorgeous and amazing this little farm is. @taylorswift ‘Christmas Tree Farm’ reminded me of the feeling of doing this, the happiness and joy we all have. It made me appreciate this tradition so much more! Thank you !! 🎄🌲🎄🌲🎄🌲🎄🌲🎄🌲🎄🌲
Retweet for Finn, because he’s a precious bean and deserves to go viral.
Under the mistletoe
Watchin’ the fire glow
And tellin’ me, “I love you”
Just bein’ in your arms
Takes me back to that little farm
Where every wish comes true💫
we interrupt yout regularly scheduled horse posts to bring you…goats! 🥰
And when the world isn’t fair
I pretend that we’re there💫
Dawn eventually gets to Mockingbird Farm - albeit much slower than it arrives on the mountain. This morning was frosty but beautiful. Doggone Nutmeg hopped out of the fence to inspect the (massive) compost heap. She and I have not yet reached an understanding about her role on the farm.
We have substantial areas of the forest that are ‘overstocked’ with trees, and thinning them out provides a better growing environment for the ones we leave and also a ton of firewood. We cut dead, damaged, crooked, or too-closely-spaced trees and leave the straightest and healthiest. (We also leave some standing dead for the woodpeckers and cavity-nesting critters.)
Meanwhile, these guys celebrate the cold weather by ignoring it!
I close my eyes and I’m somewhere else✨
Just like magic✨
