Let me just start by saying that this trip was incredibly enjoyable because of my dear friend and travel companion. Vanessa, it was a privilege to explore with you this summer. Your friendship is steady and worth a high price to me. I eagerly look forward to many more trips like this one in the future.
This trip started as a dreamy conversation between Vanessa and I early this spring
“V, what if we went to LA this summer?”
Well folks, we did! Our LA trip quickly gained the addition of a road trip Palm Springs when we looked into the ACE Hotel and Swim Club. There is really not much to dislike about the ACE in Palm Springs and it is truly a mystery how we ever said goodbye to that sunny desert town. We could have stayed forever. As we stated that we would be checking out of our room to the young man at the front desk, he casually responded, “Why would you do that?” See… a mystery.
I really can’t explain how smoothly our trip went – it was surprisingly relaxing for a long-weekend stretched thin. Even after exploring palm canyons, learning about the cicadas, making friends with shop owners, tromping around LA, and shopping the Melrose Flea Market, we were still ready for round two!
I guess another trip with this girl is in order! That is if her new fiancée approves! (Congratulations Vanessa and Eli!)
Until next time XOXO
Of course this entry would feel incomplete without a few of my iPhone snaps from the trip.
