Today’s the first day of spring, otherwise known as spring equinox. The moment only happens twice a year when everyone on the planet has an equal split of day and night. This marks the beginning of the famous long summer nights. Before we get carried away with all things spring, I wanted to share our trip to Auburn.
A few weeks ago we booked an adorable airbnb in Auburn. This small town situated in the Northern California foothills of the Sierra Nevada. I was obsessed with the idea that we could possibly see a dusting of snow during our stay. The next morning we woke up to snow falling outside our window. I was anxious to get outside, and take in all the sights of this snow covered town. I’ve gathered below my favorites captured during our drive around the neighborhoods. We wouldn't mind trading in our city lives for something a little slower and who could turn down a cottage or victorian in the mountains!?
I’ve always loved the idea of a fenced in front yard. The snow on the trees closely resembles cherry blossoms.
A victorian any day is beautiful and dreamy but a pink painted lady covered in a blanket of snow is magical.
I am always curious to meet the owners of any home I see painted in bright colors. I would totally live in either of these twin beauties!
Woodland cottage amongst the trees.
One can’t help but be drawn to this red door! Please invite me in for some coffee or tea!
This neighborhood was absolutely breathtaking with the fresh snow covered trees, moss roofs lightly dusted with snow. It reminded me of a fairytale book, all you needed was a crackling wood fire and a flannel blanket to keep warm.
