Missouri Botanical Gardens
Way back in the early spring, when flowers were just starting to bloom and the rains were firmly set in, my little sister came to visit me and we spent a weekend out in St. Louis exploring the sights, listening to some of the best music, and eating all the delicious food you just can't find out here in the middle of nowhere. My favorite part of the trip was visiting the Missouri Botanical Gardens. If you ever get a chance to go, take it! It is 1000% worth it. While we were there, it was overcast and rainy but somehow it made the place even more magical. I felt like I was in a secret garden because the near constant drizzle kept most of the people home that day. My favorite part was the greenhouse where they keep all the cacti and succulents. Just like every other girl on instagram, I seem to be obsessed with them. Though my love for them grows out of the fact that they are some of the few plants I can keep alive for longer than a week, #blackthumb.
