Palm Springs Dream

You can find such simple joy in celebrating a friend. Such was the case in venturing down to Palm Springs to celebrate B's birthday.

Palm Springs is already amazing. Truly an oasis in the desert that offers an oasis from the daily grind of work and adult life. But to visit Palm Springs with good friends and no real agenda is an extra special treat.

THE ACE HOTEL

A VERY HIP HOTEL

We flew down Thursday post-work. Landing in LA, we grabbed our rental car and drove east toward the desert. The crew dropped me off at the Ace Hotel and continued on their way to camp in J Tree National Park. I utilized the wifi, enjoyed surprise (!!) chips + salsa in my room (thanks, Meg!) and enjoyed a very hip stay at a very hip hotel.

THE PALM SPRINGS HOUSE

GET YOUR INSTAGRAM READY

After killing some time at the Ace Hotel (we highly recommend the chilequiles !!), we finally got the green light to go check into our Airbnb. And boy, was this place vibey! Step one: Don our swimsuits. Step two: Maximize pool time. Step three: Explore the record collection. Step four: Make tacos. Step five: Make cocktails and test out the hot tube. Step six: Repeat for the next 3 days.
