Whoa, that was quite a break! And a much needed one at that! I took some time off, I’ve been doing that here and there lately. Maybe, it’s coming with age but recently I’ve been a little in my head about how I spend my time. I’ve worked hard, really hard for years and I’ve finally gotten to a place in life where when needed, I can take some time and focus on what really keeps me thriving in life. For me, that’s my husband, my family and friends, and some great R&R when possible! I’m by no means spoiled, just a little older and maybe a little wiser ❤

So this years birthday was a big one! If you follow along you’ve probably read me going on and on about this “milestone” bday vacay and I must say, it was everything I had dreamed of AND more! My man and I kicked off the first two days in Waikiki Beach, eating amazing food, enjoying amazing weather, meeting interesting people … The water was so blue and warm, less salty than what we’re used to. The weather warm and breezy with just enough dampness in the air to keep my hair in beautiful natural waves (not shown in the photos above lol) ❤

My next few posts will be about this trip and what it meant to me personally and to also my marriage since this is our first alone trip in eight years, damn kids! I hope you follow along on our journey in paradise and maybe you’ll find yourself there soon ❤

OMG, can we all just stop for a moment to acknowledge how effing dreamy this hotel is?!!! I had been wanting to visit the Ace Hotel in Palms Springs for a while now after coming across it online when searching for places for a weekend getaway with my Beardo. It wasn’t until Lexie and I decided to visit PS for a girls getaway that we finally decided to check it out by having lunch and walking the grounds. A simple, neutral color palette really allows the woodwork to stand out which is the style I go for in my own home. The grounds were saturated with amazing nooks with couches, chairs, and lounging areas with fireplaces … absolutely stunning! ❤

My dress is by Urban Outfitters and is by far one of my favorites for these warmer days! I’m all about comfort lately and this dress is nothing short of that!

For those of you who have been to Palm Springs or actually live there, you probably already know about this little gem right off the resort strip. For those of you who don’t, well now you do! Moorten Botanical Garden Showplace is a photographers dream come true! I love love love cactus and succulents, so coming here had me so excited and overwhelmed I didn’t know where to start! Everything is absolutely gorgeous and if you’re from somewhere you don’t get to see a lot of this amazingness, well you’re definitely gonna get your fill. ❤

Ok guys, so I’ve kinda been living in rompers and jumpsuits lately, and I’m not even mad about it. First of all, it’s a complete outfit, no matching or planning. Second, nothing is more comfortable! I’ve had this romper for like a million years but recently purchased the yellow cardigan. I love how the yellow brings out all the pops of color. You can shop other options below. ❤

Happy Hump Day, guys! In case you don’t follow me on Instagram and have missed my instastories you may not know that I’m planning a weekend getaway with my youngest daughter Lexie, sadly Drue can’t make it 😦 Anyway, this will be our first time going and we’re excited to explore all PS has to offer. ❤

When I think of Palm Springs I think of retro glam, Mid Century Modern EVERYTHING and tons of cute, Instagramable spots! My dream come true!!! I also imagine most everything being pink and green lol so I guess that’s what I had on my mind today when doing this quick little shoot! To say I’m excited is an understatement and to be able to share the experience with non other than my super fashionable partner in crime makes this trip all the more memorable! I’m counting down the days and you should be too! You can follow along on my instastories on instagram beginning Friyay and I’ll do my best to post to FB and Twitter too! You can click each of those links at the bottom of this post. ❤
