When was the last time you climbed a tree? Oh bummer… It seems like climbing trees is a lost art. Many moons ago I use to swing from a tree in my fancy dress until my mom yelled, “EVERYONE CAN SEE YOUR UNDERWEAR!!!”
I am here to bring you back a little bit to those days of climbing trees in style.
Wear the perfect outfit
I am wearing my no name black blazer. I paired it with my Express flourescent striped shirt. Yes, it is dated but don’t throw out the shirt if it’s dated, make it work.
These pants are currently one of my faves from Banana Republic. I am a pear shape and love Banana Republic pants. You might just fall in love with their trouser jeans too.
SHOES? SHOES? Did you not notice I am playing up my California style? Oh my goodness, if my German relatives were here to see me walking around barefooted!! That is something one doesn’t do. After 15 years they should be use to it now. All my aunts and uncles run around without shoes too. Do you remember what shoes you wore when you chased after the ice cream truck or climbed trees as a child? I bet you didn’t wear any either.
Find the perfect tree
My perfect tree is a “mature” pomegrant tree. Yes, we like to use the term “mature” here in Silicon Valley. That just means hey they produce fruit everywhere. Enough fruit that we give some away to the neighbors. This tree is perfect because my beloved Mr even built a seat.
How to climb the tree?
You are probably thinking? How does a 40+ gal climb a tree.. Of course the easy way with modern technology, the step.
What happens in the tree?
My girls and their friends like to sit up in the tree and eat ice cream. I personally like to hide behind the branches and color in my coloring book. The trend is adult coloring. Why spend $20 on a trendy coloring book? Go to the local Dollar Store and grab your favorite coloring book.
After all you can show off to all your kids your great coloring skills.
Climbing trees are cool
Moral of the Story
is not really about climbing trees. When was the last time you actually walked in a forest of trees? Sometimes you have to leave your own backyard to find that perfect tree. You don’t have to climb a tree but do that something that brings you back to when you were free to climb that tree and you could care less if you go that fancy dress dirty and everyone saw your Wonder Woman underoos.
