Our Engagement-Moon in Joshua Tree

We are back from our engagement-moon! We had the best time celebrating, and shooting our love in Joshua Tree. (You can see our engagement photos from my previous post here.)

We had been planning to go to the desert for a while and thought this was the perfect time to. Joshua Tree is about an hour and a half away from LA, so it makes for the perfect drive.

On this trip, we really wanted to disconnect from everything. Joshua Tree is in the middle of nowhere, so we definitely picked the best location. There are so many cute AirBnb’s in Joshua Tree, but we fell in love with Bob’s Homestead. This home was not only a bohemian haven, but they also allowed pets! So our whole little family could enjoy the trip together. The home didn’t have a T.V. (HUGE WIN). So what did we do you ask? We spent quality time with each other, sat by the wood burning fireplace, and listened to Mozart on vinyl.

The outside of Bob’s Homestead was just as amazing as the inside. There was a Tipi, outdoor bath and shower, firepit and a huge porch swing. We spent every morning and night on the swing. I miss drinking our morning coffee here and looking up at the stars at night. Seriously, being able to see ALL of the stars at night, was such a beautiful sight. We even saw two shooting stars! (I’m not going to tell you what I wished for, sorry, it’s bad luck!) It is so rare to be able to see the stars when you live in a brightly lit city.

Until next time Joshua Tree. Xo
