Just a little over a week ago, David and I had our first ever Airbnb experience together. For past travels, we’ve either just stayed at a hotel or crashed at a friend or family member’s house. We had such a great time, and expectations were more than met. At the last minute, we decided we wanted to go to NYC before the Palm Springs airport stopped doing direct flights to New York in the summer. Unfortunately, hotel prices were already going up. I didn’t want to settle for a mediocre or less-than-mediocre hotel, so I resorted to browsing through Airbnb listings. Best decision ever — since I was able to find the cutest little abode for our 4-night stay without breaking the bank!
It’s hard to believe that I’ll be headed off to New York in just a few days! I’m excited to start traveling again but will definitely miss the warm weather in Palm Springs. As you might imagine, I don’t really have much in my closet that’ll allow me to survive in frigid temperatures. For the past month, I’ve been frantically shopping for an all-new wardrobe just for this trip. Unfortunately, I haven’t had much luck finding winter weather clothing because stores here have already moved on to their Spring collections. At this point, I figure worst comes to worst, I’ll pick up what I need when I get there… but the anxiety of not being fully prepared sucks. But hey, an excuse to go shopping in New York, right? 😉
You may have noticed that I’ve been a bit MIA here on the blog in the past week or so. Today, I am excited to share that Style Lullaby has an all new look! While working hard behind the scenes to make this face lift come to life, David & I have also been diligently creating a lot of new content. I can hardly wait to share it with you!
Two weeks ago, it got cold enough for the mountains of Idyllwild to be completely covered in snow! I know that this might not sound like a big deal for some of you… but when you’re living somewhere where the temperatures typically don’t dip below 65 degrees out during the day, I’d say that snowfall is quite a treat! Believe it or not, this snowy retreat is just a little over an hour away from where we live in sunny Palm Springs. David and I took a day trip up to Idyllwild with the dogs and it was Rolly’s first time experiencing snow. It was pure delight!
