Little life update

Hola from San Felipe!

It’s been nearly two months since the last time we spoke *inserts crying emoji face here*

When you go so long without writing it’s difficult to hop back on the blogging train. Where do I start? What do I say? What to catch you up on? To get the blogging ball rolling again I thought I would do a little photo dump for you about the past two months of my life and travels.

  1. Last time we spoke I just started my month working at the Moon Farm Pumpkin Patch in Fruita, Colorado. It was a great way to get kick off the season of fall with the yellow leaves and pumpkins all around. I also learned how to make the best pumpkin pie!
  2. Disneyland, oh glorious Disneyland. The smell of Pirates of the Caribbean, squealing and laughing down the Matterhorn, It’s a Small World for the holidays, Tigger tails and giant turkey legs.
  3. Salvation Mountain and non-photographed Slab City. So interesting! The people are totally cool and the colorful mountain just makes your heart sing.
  4. I’m currently in San Felipe, Mexico which means sunshine and tacos until mid-December. Did I mention I’m obsessed with octopus tacos?

Art in Palm Springs, California

Thursday evening The Palm Springs Art Museum is open to the public for free, can you get any better then that? I was very impressed with the museum and thought their contemporary work was very interesting, unique, and fun! I was completely in love with their photo exhibits and of course the massive Chihuly piece. It was the perfect evening to go as well because on Thursdays they have Villagefest downtown which is full of vendors, art, and good food!

The Palm Springs Art Museum has a smaller museum located in Palm Desert and it’s free everyday! Right now they have an exhibit of glass which is a private collection of a couple of gentleman who live between Australia and Palm Springs…and all of these pieces are kept in their home when not being displayed…that’s a lot of glass in one home! There’s also a little sculpture garden outside to enjoy as well.

The security guard was very friendly and showed me a few gems in some of the pieces that I would have never noticed before. This glass statue by Oben Abright has a fun gem. The back of his head you can find a face etched in peeking through the hood of his jacket.

Also, this gorgeous vase by Toots Zynsky is made of very small strains of glass, yikes! The incredible patience this artist must have. We also looked up the name of the piece which is Giubilante and it means Joyful or Jubilant!

Palm Springs, California || Moorten botanical garden and cactarium

I wandered into a desert rat’s dream. The garden is an inexpensive place to tour around! It’s a garden full of cacti, plants, and it also has the world’s first cactarium which contains rare cactus! There is also a little section where you can buy your own cactus and succulents. The most adorable tiny succulents are only $1 each and if you purchase a pot they will plant it for you as well…for free! They also have a cage of sweet doves and a few snoozing desert tortoises!

Palm Springs, California || Camera happy at hotels.

It’s December! I’m happy to announce that that I will introducing blogmas on The Seeking Wondrous blog. This means a blog everyday this month full of adventure and holiday cheer! Oh my how exciting the holiday season is. To begin blogmas I am in Palm Springs, California visiting Dustin! Since he has to work during the day I have been exploring Palm Springs during the day. Yesterday I grabbed a coffee treat from Koffi and headed out to get lost on a photo adventure.

When I was looking around online for places to see and do in Palm Springs I kept seeing images of this beautiful and retro hotel that is filled with color! I didn’t know the name of it or where to find it. I was just driving down the street and I saw it! I literally squealed “oh my god the rainbow hotel!” I flew in there and asked them if I could be a silly tourist and go around to take photos. Luckily, they were super cool with it. What a DREAM of a place! Can you get over the colors, the adorable flower hot tub, the hammocks, and those neon lights?! If there was a time I would say “I can’t even” it would be that time.

Another hotel I knew I wanted to check out was ACE Hotel. It’s very rustic with a little bit of retro. It is gorgeous! I loved the wood doors and cute cactus everywhere. My favorite part of course was the famous ACE sign. Also, there’s a little guy hiding out in the ACE sign, can you find him?

That evening when Dustin got home we went out for some Thai food. I was in need of some pad thai. Yum! More Palm Springs adventures are headed your way!
