Palm Springs is amazing spot found in the California desert roughly 150 miles from Los Angeles. I visited Palm Springs twice this year and have two more trips booked in 2018. There is something about this small desert enclave that speaks to my soul and beckons me from 2,348 miles away. I have had people tell me over the years that once you visit the desert, you never want to come back. While I love my home here in North Carolina, part of my heart and soul are currently sitting somewhere in the desert, waiting for me to return and explore and listen to what the desert is trying to tell me.
I took my professional camera to Palm Springs, but all of these photos were shot on my iPhone. They’re not technically perfect, as I was experiencing and rejoicing in the moment. I snapped while traipsing through Joshua Tree National Park. Others were snapped when I whipped my car to the curb to grab a photo of one of the mid-century modern architectural beauties peppering the streets of Palm Springs.
Palm Springs — Summer Snaps
Joshua Tree National Park was 115 degrees on the day I took this.
You’ll find me meditating under a cluster of Joshua Trees come February.
The view from the middle of the pool at our resort. I did not have a waterproof case on my phone. This means I am very lucky that it is sitting beside me on my desk and in working order.
Mid-Century Modern. Be still my heart. I never understood mid-century modern until I met my husband and always thought I was a traditional gal in terms of design and architecture. It goes to show you how something so powerful as design can change and rattle you to your very core.
There are more summer snaps to come. If you’d like to see more of my summer vacation snaps before my blog posts are up, head over to Instagram and check out my feed. I shared a lot of photos there, including some of the ones you see here.
