3 Years & 21 Weeks Married | Babymoon (in Palm Springs!)

The big highlight of our past week was our babymoon! Ideally, we would have loved to go on one final out-of-country trip before the baby came; however, because of all the travel restrictions due to COVID, we settled on Palm Springs as our getaway destination.
