Jess and Evan's Moab Birthday

The past month for Jess at work has been insane to say the least so he was especially stoked on this little trip outta town. With no time to spare, we packed up in just under an hour and headed to southern Utah... 

Kim and I planned a quick weekend trip to Moab for a Evan and Jess' joint birthday celebration and it did not disappoint. Moab is the most magical and getting to spend time there with some of my favorite people made it that much better. Our first night was car camping at Kim's special spot that overlooks Canyonlands National Park and the second night glamping was at Moab Under Canvas.

Sometimes you need a little reminder that making memories with people you love should always be high on your to-do list...

Moab Utah

The more I live here, the more I feel like I'm cheating on California beacuse I fall more and more in love with Utah every day. Oh don't get me wrong - California is my one true love, but I feel there's room in my heart for another (insert polygamy jokes here). Welcome to Moab - a magical pegasus town that is home to both Arches and Canyonlands National Parks.

I wanted to go big for Jess' 35th birthday, so I gathered 9 of our closest SLC friends and we booked a sweet set of teepees and tents at Moab Under Canvas. Let's not kid ourselves, it cannot even be called camping...but regardless of what you call it - it's just flat out amazing. Hot running water, shower, and flushing toilet IN OUR TENT. A view of the entire Arches National Park from our porch. And the staff are the nicest people I've ever met...

This trip was equal parts inspiring and tiring. I am not sure I'll ever attempt to cook and cater for 11 people in a camp setting again, but my love for design, good food, and this top shelf white man compel me to do crazy things sometimes.
