Pretty Is As Pretty Does

My best friend's birthday was on Wednesday and he told me all he wanted was to hang out with me for the day at Huntington Gardens and go to dinner. Awwww. :)

He showed up at my house around noon and after lunch, we headed over to the Huntington. I'd never been, but yesterday was the perfect day for it. The temperature was in the mid-80's and the sky was clear and bright and blue. We spent most of our time in the Japanese gardens and the cactus garden, both of which were stunningly beautiful in very different ways.

I am kinda falling in love with Pasadena after this visit, and of course, every gorgeous day like this (especially in February) makes me so incredibly glad I live in California.

Winter can suck it!

I LURVVVED Huntington Gardens the one time I made it up there (which was before I actually moved to LA). Need to get back up there some day soon. So thanks for the lovely photo-filled reminder!
