bartram's gardens

Ethan and i spent the entire weekend on a massive hunt for a wedding reception place. i never thought i was going to get obsessed with wedding planning, but it turns out i am! well, maybe just about the reception place (hopefully just about this). it turns out i actually have alot of requirements, like having some garden/outdoor space and not being too fancy. anyways, our searching took us to Bartram's gardens in southwest philly. its this crazy little garden on the banks of the river, way down in a place you would never expect it, literally right next to the projects. apparently, bartram was this country's first botanist and he traveled all over the eastern US collecting specimens, sending many of them back to England, and putting other's in this garden. the garden was just lovely, and although we decided it wasn't right for our reception, it was well worth the visit!


  1. I love this dress!! Its beautiful, and I love those shoes too. I wish we had the weather to visit gardens - we are having horrible, cold spring rains at the moment.

  2. Wow! Sounds like it's pretty close to me. I'll have to put it on my list of places to visit.

    And your pup is the perfect accessory!

  3. not to sound creepy, but your figure is amazing. what a tiny waist! ive never seen someone look as pretty as you in a dress like that!
