This 4th of July was the. best. ever. I think it’s ironic that in the land full of fake-ness and unoriginality, I have found the most genuine, talented, kind-hearted souls to spend my days with. I was invited to go to my friends birthday/4th of July bash in Indio, California which is right outside of Palm Springs. I am always up for an adventure; especially a road trip, but to spend 4 days in the desert in a house? I was nervous. I only knew the girls who invited me (who are sisters by the way). Were their friends going to like me? Would I have anyone to talk to? Am I going to be left out? Those were my concerns for a split second and then I realized everything will be ok. I like these girls a lot and trust their judgement and if they said they group was chill then I believe them. I was iffy but hey, cheers to new experiences right?!
Boy, was I right! It was the absolute best time. I’m not sure if we’re getting older or we were just all riding the same wave but no one got too out of control and there was NO drama. When we got to the house we were one of the first two groups to arrive. Everyone else trickled in throughout the weekend. They’re in a band called Petrel, so naturally as musicians do, they brought all of their instruments. I’m talking guitars, keyboard, drums, amps, cameras, go pro’s, lamps for lighting when you film- the whole nine! I was seriously impressed. We sat and had a low key family dinner at the dining room table and I just sat back and watched. I was in awe all weekend of their talent. I was surrounded by some of the best singers, musicians and song writers I’ve ever met. Needless to say, my friends inspire the f*ck out of me.
Indio Inferno came to an end and the pool floaties had to go back in the boxes to be saved for another memorable trip. The fire works burnt out and we were out of tequila. When the day came to lock the doors on the beautiful one story 6 bedroom house, we knew we were gonna miss it. I couldn’t see why anyone would want to live in the middle of nowhere, let alone a desert and then I realized how peaceful it was.
I can’t wait to see the video we made and to spend another weekend with these amazing people!
Y’all seriously- life is too short to spend time with people to don’t get you. Who don’t support you. Who don’t inspire you.
