Twelve years is a loooong time

This past weekend, Jason and I celebrated our 12th anniversary. Since we had class on Saturday, we stayed fairly close to home and spent the weekend in the Arcadia/San Marino area visiting the Huntington Library.
If you have never had the opportunity to visit the Huntington, I highly recommend it. When I was a girl, my Grandma Rose loved going to the Huntington to visit the gardens and the Gainsborough paintings. Some of my best memories of my grandparents are of walking through the gardens. Jason and I had a wonderful time and hopefully we will have a chance to take all the kids one day soon.

Path to the Rose Garden

One of the oldest roses - planted in 1940

I loved the way these grew in bunches

The Japanese Garden


The Chinese Garden and Tea House

Bamboo Forest

I loved the purple color of these succulents.
