We began this month with the anticipation of many great things, including the hunt for the perfect tree. After a good night's sleep, my parents, my brother's family, and my own family headed out. Despite the lack of snowy, or really any wintry weather, in northern Colorado, and being surrounded on all sides by beetle kill and evidence of the fire, we all found perfect trees. I'll post a picture of ours soon.
Many more good things to come. One that I relish, real mail: hand addressed envelopes with notes from people I know!
