Well let me begin to describe one of my most favorite days of this year; Thursday, 5 December 2013.
I woke up around 5 am to happy birds singing songs of great joy (that's to show you how excited I was).
I had made plans to travel to the beautiful San Marino, California and spend half the day at The Huntington Library and Botanical Gardens. I was not able to visit the museums or the libraries, but I did; however, spent a lot of time drooling and making little lakes of my own inside the botanical paradise.
Here are some photos I took (iPhone only) from my day there with Sisila Piring, her family and several of her friends!
Afterwards, a group of friends and I headed to Riverside's annual Festival of Lights. I look forward to spending time up there and every time I go, I always take a new friend. During our stay, there was an Art Festival on the corner of Mission Inn and Lime Street. I always buy something from them (even if it's at an insane price) because I love supporting their art and let them know that their hard work goes unnoticed. This photo was taken of my friend Alexia near the hot chocolate stand.
