Let's take a journey back in time. The time- 1983. The place- Boyertown, PA. Two new young parents bring their wonderful first born baby girl home. They decide to plant a tree, and watch it grow up alongside her.
Those people were my parents, and I am that girl! It's 27 years later, and on a recent trip back home, this tree was absolutely amazing. I think it was a great idea for my parents to plant a tree when I was born (it was probably the spring after I was born though, because it's too cold in December to plant a tree!), because it's been a lot of fun watching it grow.
I have to say, in my 27 years, I've never seen this tree look so pretty. I'm pretty sure I was lucky enough to be home at the peak of it's foliage this year! Oh also- it's my birthday today, so I guess that's why I'm bring this up today :)
