We scheduled this trip in mid-April when work was crazy for us both and when we just were not connecting as a couple. It was really frustrating and having a short weekend getaway on the calendar was something nice to look forward to. (Paul had Memorial Day + Tuesday off of work so we were able to go Sunday and avoid the insane holiday traffic and hotel rates.) By the time the trip came around, thankfully, things had settled both personally and professionally, but it was still a much appreciated mini-vacation.
Whenever people ask what we did on vacation (or what we plan to do on vacation) we're always pretty embarrassed. We do nothing on vacation. We sit. We enjoy good food and cold drinks. We nap. We people watch. We laugh a ton. That's it. On the one had, we're the worst travelers ever, because we never do anything exciting or adventurous on trips. But on the other hand, we're the best travelers ever because we always come home relaxed and refreshed. ;)
I was a photo taking machine over the 48 hours we were gone (though it's easy because the Ace Hotel and Palm Springs in general is crazy photogenic). I'm so excited to pull these images (plus many more) and all the paper scraps I collected into a minibook this next week.
fun facts : my black & white maxi dress and red polka dot swimsuit are both from Old Navy. Those brown sandals are Steve Madden (similar here). My sunglasses are Kate Spade (here's a similar pair). That nail polish is essie ole caliente. We stayed sunburn free with the best non-chemical sunscreen ever. I am absolutely loving The Creative Habit and can't wait to blog more about it. That last photo of Paul with the cheesy grin is my favorite ever.
