When we were coming up on our one year wedding anniversary, I started getting nervous because we had just blown any money we had for travel back in May and hadn't had much opportunity to save in between then and now. We are low-key people, we got married in the woods for goodness sakes so I wasn't looking for an extravagant get away. I just wanted something sweet, fun, off the beaten path, and memorable.

My husband, Jarrett, is amazing and surprised me with exactly that. He took me to this isolated place in Joshua Tree that you needed to drive on a dirt road to get to. It had everything from mini golf to a pool to archery to a hot tub you could watch the sunset from. There was also an old ice cream truck with arcade games in it! Our own little trailer was alien themed which was the BEST and we left the star projector on all night.

I don't want to share too much because it was a really special, personal experience with my husband. I want to protect those memories. However, please see all the beautiful and fun photos I took while there!
