Visit to Longwood Gardens

I had been wanting to visit Longwood Gardens for a while now (visit their site HERE), but the timing never seemed to work out. With the holiday weekend in full gear and some time to kill, Monday seemed like the perfect day to venture on over and see what this place had to offer.

I have to admit, I was slightly disappointed that I wasn't able to make it here during tulip season, but the day was wonderful none-the-less, plus there is always next year!

They sure had a good run and I will miss them terribly)

Hope you all had a wonderful and safe Memorial Day weekend. I also hope you took the time to remember the fallen soldiers who gave their lives to protect this country.

Check back in later this week to read all about what I've been up to since I last posted in February. It's been a busy/adventurous few months and I can't wait to share with you all!

  2. I love your skirt! And the gardens look beautiful! There are some gardens near me that I have been wanting to visit but I haven't gotten the chance... I doubt I will go this summer just because of the heat but I hope I'll be able to visit them when it cools down! Can't wait to read what else you've been up to :)
