Ah, winter….the time of year when us city folk start thinking about heading out of town for a peaceful vacation in the mountains. Those of us living in Southern California are really quite fortunate in that we can enjoy our local mountains just a few short hours away by car ride. We often joke that we can see the beach, mountains and desert all in one day. Our local mountains are quite lovely and I am so happy to hear about the amount of snow we’ve already received. If you want to see it for yourself, take a tour of the beautiful winter wonderland in Lake Arrowhead, California captured by my fellow blogger friend Celia in her post here. The images surrounding her property are just divine.
I’ve never been to Switzerland in the winter (or anytime, for that matter) but would someday like to pay a visit. And when I do I would sure hope that I could call a charming Swiss chalet home for a few nights. It would be heavenly to stay in a place like Chalet Kernow in Verbier, Switzerland decorated by English designer Marion Lichtig. I can already see myself sitting by the fire, sipping on a cup of hot chocolate while enjoying the gorgeous scenery of the snow capped mountains. I wonder if they could spare one of the 6 bedrooms? If I have options, I just might call first dibs on the top bunk!
