Mini Album | Palm Springs, ca


At least a couple of times a year my best friend and I take a trip somewhere together. About four years ago her husband dubbed these weekend trips EXTREME CRAFTING WEEKEND (they're typically over a weekend so my husband can watch our kids). If you follow me in instagram then you've seen me say this before ... they've devolved into a weekend of drinking massive amounts of coffee. We jokingly now call them EXTREME COFFEE WEEKEND. I digress.

Anyway, I wanted to share a few of my favorite layouts from the mini-album I created for this trip. We always pick an album that fits the mood of the trip. Our format is always 4x4 and we each make our own version of it. We have very different styles of memory keeping, so it's always fun to see how we each interpret the trip.

These trips are always about self-care for me. As a busy mom taking care of a large family, I need these weekends to relax and take some time for myself. As the years have passed we've become more comfortable with selfies. It took us a LONG time to get comfortable. She's a photographer, so I'm always trying to find ways to get her on the OTHER side of the camera. *laugh*

I hope you enjoy this layouts. Let me know what you think! Do you have any favorite stops in Palm Springs?
