To me, nothing says Christmas quite like the small of a blue spruce. Every year when I was growing up my family would drive into the countryside to find a Christmas tree together, and it's one of my very favorite holiday traditions. Last week Hannah and I loaded into my little car and drove up to Quail Creek Ranch, a tree farm up in the hills by Portland's Forest Park. My cousin Anna happened to be in town, and it was wonderful to enjoy a relaxing Sunday brunch together at a neighborhood cafe, Cup & Saucer before going to find a Christmas tree.

We ended up getting the sweetest little douglas fir, which is currently bringing a little extra Christmas cheer to our tiny apartment.
