The Journey Woman Avec @ZoeSchaeffer

Indeed, love is in the eye of the beholder! And that's every bit as true when it comes to travel. That's why we've asked some of our favorite journeywomen to share their most cherished recommendations across the wide, romantic world. First up, retailer, tastemaker, writer, entrepreneur, mother of dragons, compulsive traveler, home design obsessive, and magazine junkie @ZoeSchaeffer muses on the magic of Descanso Gardens, 150 enchanted botanical acres practically in her backyard.

"We've done so many family photo shoots at Descanso Gardens because there is nothing precious about it — and I prefer a more wild, organic look over something that's perfectly manicured. A few years after my dad died, I contacted a medium who gave me unnervingly explicit details from one of these shoots and told me that my father was with us that day. Ever since, when I look at these pictures, I think of my three daughters running in the sun while he shines down on us."

Don't forget ... to take a ride on the vintage yellow railroad train that winds its way through the flowers. It's sweet and oh so memorable.
