The perfect weekend.

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.

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. Some neon light art in MPC London - how great is this piece!? Happy to be back with my love and getting a tour of his work home from the last month! Packing up for an adventure with my man! Heading to Croatia tomorrow (via London) for about 10 days! 👋✈️ The power is out in my neighborhood this evening. Looks like I'll be calling it an early night. 🌙 Handsome boy squinting in the sunset. #catsofinstagram #fbf to that one time in 2009 I married my favorite person in the whole world, @thisisderekhansen. My life with him is infinity x better, and I certainly wouldn't want it any other way. You make me the best version of myself. Happy 5 year anniversary, my love! I'll meet you in Europe in a few weeks to celebrate. Missing you till then. ♡ I got to meet this perfect specimen today. What a sweet little guy. We love you, Arlo! Major congrats to @laurenabradshaw & @joseph_bradshaw! Had such a lovely time at the brand new event space in Hollywood, @lombardihouse! Such a great space, and fun event! When can I move in? 🏡
