the arboretum







Yesterday my sister Charlotte and I went to an arboretum to shoot some photos for a Free People post. It was everything we could have asked for. Hardly anyone was there. The weather was perfect. It was just... so... pleasant. This was our mom's absolute favorite place, and we couldn't help but think of her the entire time... imagining her walking around with us, being silly, making jokes, pointing out different flowers that she loved. She was the most modest yet incredible gardener. Char and I are realizing that as we get older, we find ourselves really appreciating the things our mom loved so dearly, more and more. The beauty of all things natural being at the absolute top. It sucks that we don't have her here to outwardly share our love for nature, but she's here. And we know she knows. <3
