First order of business? Take a trip to southern ILLINOIS (yes we left the state of Missouri for this gem) so that my cousin could show us the ropes at Wild Country...he's the cowboy on the right. The band was great, and the singer definitely thought she was Stevie Nicks.
Saturday morning we spent exploring, and gawking. Right next to Forest Park is this amazzzzing neighborhood, Central West End, that is teeming with mansions and old money.
One of my favorites from the day...the stone was rose colored, and the entrance was gorgeous.
Lastly a shoutout to the Bride & Groom...CONGRATS! It was lovely and I adored the birds that sat atop the cake!
