I've probably hugged more than one tree in my lifetime...

I'm sure it had something to do with Shel Silverstein's The Giving Tree.

That book made me cry.

CFC122: Show us your Clean And Simple projects that feature a tree or trees.

I used my favorite Verve Christmas tree~it makes me smile every time I see it!

I still love trees...they're just so....

accepting, you know? ;)
