when we were checking into the la quinta resort during our mini vacation there last month, i overheard the concierge mention to a guest that this is a busy time of year for the desert cities. first come the president’s day/ski week vacationers, then the tennis fans to attend the bnp paribas open (of which we took part!), and finally -perhaps the biggest event of them all –coachella. despite knowing and loving many of the artists/bands that have played the famous festival, i can’t say you’ll ever find me attending. partially because heat and i are not friends but mostly because i would be way too concerned that my wardrobe wasn’t bohemian enough to fit in. the only flower crown i’ve ever worn was as a junior bridesmaid when i was eight years old (and clearly, i was a trendsetter).
