After weeks of cold and rain in PA, we were so happy to see some blue skies and sunshine in LA. We took every opportunity to be outside while we were visiting Los Angeles and that included a trip to the Griffith Observatory. When we lived in LA, we never got to visit the Observatory since was closed for renovations and didn't reopen until just before we moved away. So... we were really excited about visiting it on this trip. Little did we know before we drove up there that it's closed on Mondays due to state budget cuts! Denied again! Although we weren't able to go inside, that didn't stop up from walking around and enjoying the views. If you use your imagination, you can tell that the blurry white splotch on top of the hill in that last photos is actually the Hollywood sign.

These are SUCH pretty pictures. Your dress is super sweet and I love that you paired them with those shoes that are a bit edgier. Cute!
