NOLA: Botanical Gardens.

These past two days have been SUCH a good idea. Finals ended and I had a few days off work after Mother's Day, so the boyfriend and I headed down to NOLA to stay with my brother and sister-in-law. He'd never been here before, so I was even more excited to come back and show him everything!

For two days, we did a pretty huge amount of stuff that certainly wouldn't fit in one blog post. Thus, I'm just going to focus on one thing at a time.

I let him choose everything we were going to do yesterday, and we ended up going to a few places that I'd never been [or even heard of!] before. This botanical garden was absolutely, breathtakingly gorgeous, and I have so many more pictures but I couldn't put them all in one post. This one is already loaded down.

Have you ever been to the botanical gardens in NOLA? 
If not, what's your favorite part about the city? :)

  1. I will be stalking your NOLA posts lol I leave one week from tomorrow to spend a few days in NOLA and need ideas on where to go! I may just have to visit the gardens!

  2. Ahh, so pretty! I used to live in NOLA..your post makes me miss it! Glad you're enjoying the city :)

  3. I love the photos of you on the bench! You look lovely! xx

  4. Yaayyy I love it! NOLA is the best. I've never been to the botanical gardens though. It's definitely something I would love so I'll have to check it out next time!!

  5. I've been two NOLA twice, but neither time really counts, because it wasn't an overnight trip, so I didn't really do anything - nothing even blog post worthy. And I live in Louisiana! It's such a shame. I've never heard anyone talk about the Botanical Garden there, but it looks so beautiful! I love the pictures of you one the bench. Adorable.

  6. Woo! That's super exciting! I hope you get some ideas from it. :)

  7. That's so crazy! How far are you from NOLA since you're in LA? You should definitely go. There is SO much to do there!

  8. You absolutely should!! :) I know you've been before, and I have as well, but there's so much you would just never think about doing!

  9. Awe, yay! :) I hope to live there for a little while at some point in my life. :)

  10. These photos look lovely! I didn't even know NOLA had a botanical garden. I've never been to the city before!

  11. I actually live in north LA, so I'm all the way on the other side of the state. Like 6 hours. I'm closer to Dallas, TX. I feel like I'd have so much fun in NOLA! I'll have to plan a vaca down there.

  12. I've never been to the botanical gardens, but it looks gorgeous! I'll have to make that a priority the next time I visit.

  13. I know! I didn't either. The boyfriend picked it. :)

  14. You absolutely should! It is ridiculously beautiful.


comment, encourage, or tell me happy thoughts.
any of the three will do. :)
