December 7 – When weeds become Christmas trees

I  just found out about the December Photo Project from my friend Christy. I’ve been having trouble motivating myself to blog this fall so maybe this will help.

  1. Yay! It will be fun to read your blog each day. Last year I did the photo project hoping that I would keep it up for the rest of the year. I think I wrote in my blog a handful of times… Maybe this year will be different! I love your parents’ Christmas tree. Justin’s parents did the same thing last year for the same exact reason.
