Christmas tree 2014

Check out these photos of last years Christmas tree. We cut it down at Little Switzerland Fraser Firs in Little Switzerland, North Carolina. If you are in the area and need a beautiful Christmas tree make sure to check them out. Great little family farm in the hills of North Carolina. Also, there is a coupon on their website and they are dog friendly! Can’t go wrong!

We are currently super busy getting ready for our upcoming trip to Texas. I’ll be posting for Blogmas while we are there so make sure to check back daily to see all of our adventures. Also, follow me on Instagram for even more fun!

What does your house look like for the holidays? Do you get a tree? Let me know in the comments!

Until tomorrow! Xoxo

It’s starting to look a lot like Christmas!

Well, thanksgiving is done and over and Christmas is now everywhere. We got our tree a couple of weeks ago but it’s just now that the harvest decor is coming down and it’s really starting to feel like Christmas.
Since getting our tree all of our local friends have been asking us where we got it and I’m happy to share.
Our beautiful 8 foot tall Fraser fir came from a little family farm in the Smoky Mountains called Little Switzerland Fraser Firs. About an hour and a half from our home outside Charlotte, high in the mountains sits a dog friendly, family friendly slice of Christmas tree utopia.
Little Switzerland Fraser Firs has hundreds of beautiful Fraser fir Christmas trees to chose from. From tall to small you really can’t go wrong. This is our 2nd year cutting down a tree from there and as long as we are in North Carolina, it is the only place we’ll go.








As you can see we really had a great time. Basil even made two new friends, a horse and another Boston terrier!
If you are in the area and still in the need of a Christmas tree make sure to check out Little Switzerland Fraser Firs.

What does your Christmas tree look like? Send us photos and I’ll post them here! Hope everyone is surviving the week and the weather!

PS… As I’m posting this I had to stop Willow (our 20 lb. cat!) from drinking our of the Christmas tree stand, TWICE!

On a side note to todays Basil’s Travels advent calendar post, both of these adorable photos were taken at Little Switzerland Frasier Firs in Little Switzerland, NC. In the mountains of North Carolina we found a friendly family tree farm with hundreds of beautiful Frasier firs. It was absolutely perfect and Basil had an amazing time. Trees are reasonably priced and the land & view was worth the trip. If you’re in NC and have yet to pick out your Christmas tree please consider Little Switzerland Frasier Firs for all your tree needs! For those of you on the west coast, let me recommend Keith & Scott tree farm in North Bend, WA. When we are on the west coast this is were we always cut down our tree. They are great, have a lot of different kinds of trees, and are dog & family friendly. Hope everyone is having a get start to their holiday season and make sure to check back here everyday for more BT advent calendar photos!

Travel well, Nap well, Live well!
