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.

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? 🏡 Wrapped a little something for my sweet sister's baby shower! | pickles & trucks wrap by @belleandunionco, coral ribbon by @angelaliguori | #urbaniclove I went for a run on the beach today after work and stopped here under the Venice Pier for a little bit to take it all in. I am thankful. 💛 Lately, my wonderful @thisisderekhansen and I have been trying to incorporate more walks along the beach together into our weekly rhythms. These walks have been creating such a nice space to clear my head and spend some time with the one I love most. This evening's walk sure was a beautiful one. 🌊💛 The baby shower we threw for the ever lovely @laurenabradshaw is up on @100layercakelet today!

Perfect! #venicesummer ☀️ Missing my Grammy today, as this is the kind of card I would write her a note on, and she would have loved to receive. Is there an address for Heaven?
