All this week I have been sharing info about the creative retreat Lauren and I put together this summer. For the last two years, we have hosted this weekend in Palm Springs for several reasons. It is relatively close to the mostly OC based creatives that attend, it’s usually warm and sunny making pool time a necessity and the desert has great food, people and atmosphere.
