Dave and I got our second live Christmas tree this year, and it is beautiful! We met up with my family at Pochuck Valley Farms in Glenwood, NJ this past weekend and chopped down two stunning trees. One is in our living room in Metuchen, and the other is in my parents’ living room in Waldwick. I don’t think we could have picked a better day to go tree hunting–it was blustery, but otherwise perfect!
We started by walking the rows of trees looking for the right one. Dave and I found our tree right in the first row–and it was just what we were looking for. After my dad chopped down the first tree, we got right to work on ours. It only took five minutes to fell the tree and five minutes more to load it up, but it was still such fun visiting the farm and getting a tree at this place we so love.
The ride home was filled with quite a few white knuckles. Above my parents’ van, their tree came loose and started shimmying from side to side. It took two separate pull-overs to fasten it, and about five miles away from the house, it did a major jump on the highway. With my mom grasping onto it through the sunroof, we all made it home in one piece (miraculously!).
It was fun trimming the tree here, and I hope you’ll enjoy the photos. May they bring you some holiday cheer!
