Hello February!  We’re a month into the year, I’m a month into my study saga, and I can’t believe how quickly January flew by.  What did I do?  Studied.  Studied.  Studied.  Skied (yay!).  Studied.  Studied.  Yet there’s still so much studying to be done.  Alas, the blog took a back seat to studying, but I’m doing what I can people haha.  In light of this, I decided to make a little series recapping the holiday season.  I love learning about people’s holiday traditions so I thought I would share mine with you all!  Call it late, or just really really really early holiday prep for next December haha.  Growing up, my family always cuts our own trees from tree farms so when we moved out West we obviously had to find a good farm, of course.  My dad discovered this cute little spot in Mission owned by the sweetest little grandma that had the best trees (Noble Firs, Douglas Firs…you name it).  There’s trees, hot chocolate, a fish pond (we are all children/adult children MUST feed the fish haha), and farm animals galore.  The goats were cuties for sure…not as cute as Moka (see photo above for reference), but pretty darn close.  With my dad no with us, it’s so special to have Essex come help.  I’m sure my dad was smiling down at us extra hard that day.  The goal was three trees and we did it.  We even dug one up to plant in a planter (followed by poop scooping to fill in the hole we dug for fertilizer)…so far it’s surviving!  Worth the poop scooping.  With a truck full of fir trees we left the farm 100% satisfied.  Afterwards, upon a recommendation from a friend we had lunch at the cutest log cabin restaurant called The Blackberry Kitchen  and I highly recommend it if you’re in Mission!  Organic tea and the best comfort food.  My mac n’ cheese was sooo good.  We also took a walk on the grounds of Westminster Abbey, the monastery there, to take in some peaceful and epic views.  A monk’s life seems pretty darn chill.  ‘Twas a great day with family and when we got home Moka greeted us excitedly.  Love days like that when you take a break from work/school/emails and just spend quality time together.  What’s your Christmas tree tradition?  Look out for Part 2 of this series tomorrow!  In the meantime, follow me on Instagram (@titaszlachetka) for daily outfits and adventures.  Ciao babeskillets, Tita xx
