summer walk

6/26/12



we drove to la cañada on friday where we spent hours exploring descanso gardens. it's so nice driving outside of los angeles for the day, it always feels like a getaway regardless of how close we still are to the city.




descanso botanical gardens is full of natural beauty. i'm pretty sure we picked the perfect afternoon to visit since the grounds were so quiet. it gave us plenty of time to explore without any interruptions.




what i'm enjoying the most about our summer vacation, is the time we get to spend together exploring the city we live in. after almost three years in los angeles, one might think we've seen it all, but i am constantly blown away with the amount of places we have yet to visit.






i secretly wish we could do this all the time, but i suppose the lack of free time makes these tourist-y adventures that much more enjoyable.




ever feel like a tourist in your own city? because that's exactly how i feel every single time we explore. i love the feeling!

This made me smile!! My grandma used to take me to Descanso all the time when I was growing up... I thought it was the most magical place in the world. :)

I love that second photo of you! It has a nice feeling.

I feel like I haven't seen nearly enough of LA in my years here.
