Today is the 2nd day of Christmas. I unfortunetly live in an apartment and have no where to plant my Pear tree, my true love gave me, yesterday. So, I think I will plant it in front of a home I help build with Habitat for Humanity! This amazing charity helps build homes for low income families or those families who have lost their home do to natural disasters.
