Living in the eclectic small town of Joshua Tree, there’s not many activities specifically tailored for babies. But we’ve got no shortage of magical natural spaces, & luckily for me Prairie really enjoys spending time outdoors. She’ll often crawl to the door and bang on it, demanding to go play in the yard, so I like to joke that we live in nature’s sandbox. We’ve been packing her along for hikes since she was a tiny baby and so far she doesn’t mind riding in her carrier one bit, although she does like to take breaks to explore. The challenge for me is watching to make sure she doesn’t eat sand or crawl through a cactus! The key to desert dressing is light layers, they act as sun protection, and also you would be surprised how cold it can get here in the evenings and during the winter. These days, our main form of socializing is heading over to a friend’s house for dinner and maybe a campfire. We have a few friends here who operate these amazing bohemian Airbnbs, and it’s always a treat to visit one their inspirational spots. These pictures are of Prairie and I exploring the grounds of the Joshua Tree Casita (http://www.thejoshuatreehouse.com, @thejoshuatreehouse) so of course we had to dress the part in matching mama and me desert florals by Thief & Bandit (http://thiefandbandit.com, @thiefandbandit).
