Throwback Thursday: Coachella Weekend 1

Pin It

I’m not sure what happened faster, Madonna’s Weekend 1 cameo or the entirety of Weekend 1, but either way it’s over and all we can do now is look back and reflect.

And what a weekend it was.



My fifth year in the fields did not disappoint. I’m sharing with you guys a look at my happy place through the lens of my iPhone – the fields, the flowers, the Spicy Pie and the Cool Haus sandwiches. My friend Ally and I really tried to take in as much as possible and we’ll be catching up on sleep as everybody enjoys Weekend 2. Not pictured here but favorite performances, in no particular order: Florence and the Machine, Alt J, Marina and the Diamonds, Steely Dan and Drake.



This was also a year of firsts for me in the desert. First time at Neon Carnival – won a bunch of little stuffed animals for Dublin that he was pretty happy about. First time considering a hair color change – I was on the hunt for Julianne Hough and her new pink do but I might just have to take a chance myself. And first time seeing a massive caterpillar transform overnight into a glittering butterfly. Learn all about the artists and meaning here.



Suffice it to say, this Coachella will not be my last. You’re right, Mom – I’m a hippie at heart after all.
