Some of you may find this strange, but you Boston residents will likely agree, that Mount Auburn Cemetary is a beautiful place to visit. In the Fall I love the vibrant colors and crunchy leaves tumbling across the many footpaths dotting the hillsides; in Spring I enjoy the lily-of-the-valley popping up by the turtle pond; and in Summer I enjoy climbing to the top of the little tower for the amazing view. Who knew a cemetary could be so lovely and so appropriate of a place to visit?
My sister, who lives in Boston, sent me a beautiful letterpressed card for my birthday along with this polaroid of Mount Auburn Cemetary, which she knows is one of my favorite places in the Boston area. It is a daily reminder of our beautiful life in Boston not too long ago.
