Julian

Pin It!

Julian is a tiny mountain town in Southern California that is famous for their apple pie. When Brandon and I were first dating we took a day trip to Julian, and we've been going back every year in April.
We've come to Julian every year and taken a picture in this exact spot - 2012

2007
2009 - I didn't say all of the pictures were in focus
Things to do in Julian:
Candy Stores:
Remember cigarette gum?! Had to buy a pack.

Shops: filled with old, pretty things...some that smell nice.

Yummy BBQ: in old barns with checkered table cloths
Pretty streets

and most importantly: Apple Pie and other delicious fattening treats...
I hope we always continue to take day trips to Julian.
We've yet to go in the winter when there is actually snow but I can imagine that could be pretty fun as well.
Happy 5th "Dateversary" Brandon!

I'd like to purchase an 8x10 of the one with you and the BBQ. How many dollars for that one? I have the perfect place for it at the new place.

I love the pictures of this candy store! It reminds me of this candy store back home in Sacramento where you can eat ANY CANDY IN THE STORE as long as you are in the store eating it... true story. Amazing.
