me: blouse & skirt h&m, socks & gold daisy cut out flats f21, purse vintage
him: vintage blazer YSL, shirt & pants h&m, shoes..don't know yet.

This was a funny weekend, both of us forgotten our "official" one year anniversary that took place last Thursday. We woke up Saturday morning getting ready to go to the Huntington Library and remembered. The funny thing was that he bought me flowers on Friday "for no reason" he said. I can't believe it's been official for a year. The other 3 years we've been together were quiet dramatic to say the least. We were the on/off couples that would have intense break ups and say we'll never see each other again but come back together in the end.

The Huntington Library was absolutely gorgeous. I haven't been there for awhile and really wanted to check out the new Chinese Garden they installed a year ago. I also wanted to have lunch at the tea room, but you have to make reservations. We tried last minute but it was all booked. You have to at least reserve 2 weeks - 30 days in advanced. So when we got there, we decided to eat at the Cafe, but upon seeing trays and trays of gourmet sandwiches..Ryan asked one of the chefs if he could get one. The guy was kind enough to give us 2 samples. We at least got a little taste of the dream.

Just to warn you, lots of photos ahead that has been altered for the mood of the shots.

Going through the pathways at the rose garden reminded me of old storybook fairytale. I wanted to get lost in the woods and find magical elves dancing afar. I want them to take my by the hand and lead me to a secret kingdom. Everyone there would be as delightful as the flowers and powers that can heal a broken heart.

Great pictures! You two make a very cute couple! I love the Huntington, but unfortunately, Ryan and I didn't take too many pictures last time. I can't wait for all the roses to bloom, that's my favorite part!

Great photos, the editing definitely captures the mood.

Happy anniversary to the pair of you! That garden looks beautiful; there's a classical Chinese garden in Vancouver I haven't visited in ages. It's quite beautiful in the summer when all the lotus blossoms bloom.
