Growing up, we always had a real Christmas tree. The whole family would get in the stain wagon and drive down to the IGA and pick out our tree from the lot.

Once we got it home and spent way too much time trying to get it balanced in the tree stand, we would decorate it. Like most families, it was nothing like a scene out of a Christmas movie. My brother and I would usually start fighting, then my dad would get mad and mom would lock herself in the bedroom, cry about how my brighter and I colden't get along and read her book. You know how it goes.

Even with the drama and fights that my family so often had, I remember those times fondly. I remember the warmth I felt both in the house and in my heart. Those moments, that we were together, are times that I will always treasure. Sometimes, especially lately, I wish I could go back to those simpler, happy, family times.

My daughter is carrying on the tradition of a real Christmas tree. They have 12 ft ceilings, so their tree is always HUGE. So now, my sweet granddaughter is making the same beautiful memories with her family. It warms my heart to know that. Well, except for the fights, hopefully.

If you are on team real tree, this is pretty exciting news. Since Christmas will be a lot different this year and some may be uncomfortable getting out of the house to get their tree, Lowe's wants to make it a little easier. You can order a tree from Lowe's and they'll DELIVER it for FREE in two to five days.

Thank you Lowe's, for making us feel good in a bad situation. Even though you will be missing out on picking out the tree, you will still get a beautiful tree to help you carry on your real tree family tradition safely.
