for the third leg of our trip, we opted to skip right over LA (who needs traffic and celebrities anyway!) in lew of relaxing in palm springs for a few days. this happens to be the best decision we’ve ever made. once we made up our minds that we’d be in palm springs for a bit, there was no other option, but to stay at the ace hotel. i’m pretty sure every blogger, photographer, and any creative with an online presence has stayed at this hip, desert oasis. basically, we’d heard about it so much that we couldn’t wait to experience it for ourselves. we pulled into town, checked into our room and immediately changed into our swim suits. we snagged a couple of chairs by the pool, which are few and far between around midday, and ordered a couple of cocktails and a vegan burger to split.
it. was. paradise.
not only was our time at the ace amazing, and just what we needed, we had so much fun exploring the desert. we fell in love with the desert on this trip. we spent an entire day hiking through joshua tree national park and oohing and ahhing over the vastly unique terrain. you must know, that the alternate title for this post was, “wesley climbs large rocks”… you’ll see a lot of that below and on our instagram feeds here and here.
