When my mom turned 65, Tate and I took her to Austria for the 50th anniversary of her favorite film, The Sound of Music. We were the ultimate tourists, taking in all the sights and scenes from the movie.
I will never forget the aroma as we arrived at Lake Hallstatt. It was exactly how you imagine the Alps would smell. A wide-open meadow mixed with the sweetest honey. Crystal blue glacial water and views for days. The hills are alive with this fresh scent!
