i was really feeling the need to get into the christmas spirit today, considering it was 70 degrees out and it felt like summer. so i went to the botanical gardens with my family and my cousins from england. it has been a few years since i have been, and it was truly amazing, but to be completely honest i didn't really want to go at first. i have been a bit bah hum bug about the holidays this year and just not really being in the mood to play family games or watch family movies. but going to the garden, watching the train exhibit, and seeing all the landmarks recreated by bark just made me happy. seeing little kids get so utterly excited about the tiny trains zooming by just brought a smile to my face. plus i got to take cool pictures. honestly, any time i come home from somewhere with lots of pictures to look back on, i will always be happy! i love being able to write so freely on here and just say whatever i am feeling. i still haven't been able to decide whether or not i want to write in capitals. at first i did but it took more effort and time, and i like how carefree lowercase looks. idk yet.
here are some pictures from today
