We decided it’d be a great idea to pack up the dogs and surprise visit our family for the holidays. Every year the Durkins go to the same Christmas tree field to cut down their own Christmas tree. This year we were able to be there for the tradition, which is always a festive experience. The air during the holidays in NJ is fresh of cedar and crisp pine wood. Not to mention the chestnuts roasting on an open fire. It’s kind of a childhood love we share.
