Closer to 'home'
I was born and raised in Traverse City and raised my daughter there before we moved to Texas many years ago. I can't tell you how excited I was to hear on the Fort Worth, Texas, TV station that the Christmas tree that would soon arrive to be placed in downtown Fort Worth this year was coming from Traverse City. Although I have been coming back to Traverse City several times a year during the summers, I have never been able to make it back for the Christmas season and so miss the beautiful trees and everything else that goes with a Michigan Christmas. (Yes, even the snow.)
I am constantly telling everyone that Traverse City is such a beautiful place. Until I can return to the area, which is a plan for the future, seeing this beautiful Christmas tree will have to feed that nostalgic feeling I get every year during the holidays. So I will take my friends and we will all head for Sundance Square in Fort Worth, Texas, and I will feel a little closer to "home" this year.
