Julian, California


Julian, California, originally uploaded by A!ison.

On a whim, my mom took the day off. I picked her up early this morning and we took a thirty minute ride Northeast to Julian. We walked the antique shops, ate lunch at the old fashioned soda fountain, bought an apple pie and of course stopped by the cider mill to buy some apple butter. My mother-in-law loves apple butter so I plan to take it with me in a week to Florida when we see her for the first time in about two years. I bought myself some pumpkin butter and a pumpkin scone mix!!

It was the best time I'd had with my mom in a long time. We never go off by ourselves and it was the perfect day, not too hot, not too cold and the sky was so blue! On the way home we marveled at God's creation and ooo'd and ahh'd at all the wild mustard growing along the side of the road. It was seriously a flawless day.
