The perfect weekend.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Derek and I went to Ace Hotel & Swim Club in Palm Springs for the weekend to celebrate our 1 year wedding anniversary.  Derek had been working like crazy for the last few weeks, so a relaxing weekend was exactly what he (we) needed, and it was so great to enjoy it together.  We laid by the pool for most of the time, but we also treated ourselves to a suuuper relaxing couples massage…oh man was that ever amazing.  We will definitely be back to Ace – it was very much our style.  Everything’s decorated with a vintage, hand-picked flare, and nothing is without character.  Mmm.mmm.mmm.  Love it.

Also, we started a new tradition!  Since not only did Derek propose to me with photobooth strips, but we also had a photobooth at our wedding, we are going to take a photos in a photobooth each year on our anniversary!  Lucky for us, the Ace Hotel has an old black and white photobooth in their lobby.  Meant to be.

I’m pretty sure I’m more in love with Derek now than I ever have been before.  He’s the best I could ask for.

Got some goodies from the @riflepaperco sidewalk sale today! I get to meet this little nugget tomorrow...dying to jump on a plane to him right now! 😍 #judeemerson #firstnephew From my walk last night with @thisisderekhansen. The sun is setting earlier, and the nights are still warm and lovely. #flashbackfriday to a few months ago when @thisisderekhansen and I made this sweet little girl. She was bouncing around today for us as we found out that she is a SHE! Coming February 2015, our little family is growing by 1! ♡ Home. #90291 #venice This one is from yesterday, when we took a boat to visit a few islands. This was at the top of Hvar, after visiting the fortress there. Our last day in Croatia, we spent it by (& in) the Adriatic Sea. It's been a fantastic and relaxing trip. Today it rained most of the day. This was taken in a brief intermission from the downpour when we explored a little bit of the palace. After a long hike to the top of a nearby hill, we found our way to a little cove to sit on the rocks and swim in the sea. 🐟 Wandered around Liberty of London yesterday for a few hours. I only wanted approximately infinity things.
