Tree Trimming Party

family Dec 10, 2017

My husband and I were invited to a tree trimming party yesterday, parents of some friends of ours who live in an old house on 400 acres.

It was an amazing evening filled with friendships, history and sharing childhood memories. And old wooden floors, wood burning fireplaces, and wine cellar doors shipped from an ancestors home in France (incredible story!)

I got to hang an ornament that was over 100 years old!!!

The proprietor, John, who is about 82 years old, has generated several genealogy charts framed in his cellar going back to the 1400s.

The home belonged to his grandparents and has had some additions added over the years. Going through the home and hearing the stories was pretty amazing.

Side note: The house was used as a hospital for amputees in the Civil War. There was even marks on the wood floor from the blood of the soldiers. 😧

I felt the true spirit of Christmas last night, being with wonderful people, remembering past memories, and those who have come before us. I feel so blessed to have been included. 😍

(View from their front door gives just a glimpse of the beautiful setting.)
