My desert rose, my oasis, my love. 

Joey and I took a quick trip to Palm Springs in between hectic Coachella weekends to avoid the madness and it was once again, magical. This experience was much different than the last being that we stayed in an amazing, super Pinterest-like home thanks to The house was only 7 miles from the Ace Hotel, yet completely isolated and quiet. 3 bedrooms, a jacuzzi, Wifi, full kitchen – we cannot wait to go back and take some friends next time – make a long weekend out of it. Here is my photo diary from the trip and I hope this inspires you to get out there for an adventure and take a trip. Try a new place you haven’t been before. Go get creative and do whatever makes you feel alive.

This is that massive love. That all-consuming love. That ‘I can’t believe this exists in the physical realm of this universe’ kind of love. The kind of love that erupts into an uncontrollable blaze an then simmers down to embers and burns quietly, comfortably, for years to come. The kind of love they write novels, screenplays, and symphonies about. The kind of love that teaches more than you thought you could ever learn, and gives back infinitely more than it takes. The “love of your life” kind of love.

If you’re lucky, you get to meet the love of your life. You get to spend the rest of your days with them, live life to the fullest with them, and grow with them. You bring out the absolute best in each other. It’s an experience like nothing else we have on this earth. It transforms you into this beautiful soul full of abundant love, endless light, and fiery passion. It’s a permanent honeymoon phase. Issa lifestyle.

Soulmates forever.
