Spicy Chicken + Corn Fajitas

Processed with VSCOcam with f2 preset We were in some sort of sporting goods store the other day (not for me are you kidding) and we saw this little desk advertising tree permits. There was a line of men at the desk waiting their turn. I asked Garr, “What does tree permit mean?” He answered, “Oh you can cut down your own Christmas tree here.” …………………………………………………….. Processed with VSCOcam with f2 preset Now maybe this happens in lots of places that are overrun with Evergreens, but I’m not really up to date on my forestry shenanigans. Processed with VSCOcam with f2 preset Like, I thought only Clark Griswold cut down his own Christmas tree.
