update: I finally got to experience my first “snow day”

headed up to sierra nevada for a weekend in the mountains. this “staycation” was a very spontaneous decision to celebrate our one year wedding anniversary a weekend early (I still can’t believe it’s been a year already, where has the time gone?) we’ve been working really hard this year and deserved some R&R in a new place and setting…..and weather.

I had never seen (real) snow before so when I saw on our weather forecast for the weekend I was literally jumping for joy. I stayed up to watch the small little snow flurries fall from the sky and melt quicker than I could scream “It’s snowing!!” I’m a real big optimist so this was more than perfect for me. After being outside taking photos and videos, I decided to call it a night. I think it was the numb sensation in my fingers, toes and nose.

But when we woke up and walked out of our little cottage, I did NOT expect for it to be still snowing and most of the grounds were covered in snow. Apparently this was a really rare occasion for the week, I’ll just call it a special surprise 😉

**in case you were wondering, we stayed in the small town of Capileira in the Sierra Nevada region in a hotel called “Hotel Finca Los Llanos”. It’s just about 2.5 hours driving from where we live in Marbella.
