[PALM SPRINGS]

 

Sarah: Canada is absolutely home.

And Palm Springs is this beautiful, tiny, little sunshine-y spot on the map that I can get to so quickly with my children and my family and just unwind and enjoy.

 

[Sarah’s sitting in pool floatie.]

[RECHARGING FAMILY + BUSINESS]

 

[Sarah’s working on her laptop while her husband and son are playing in the pool.]

 

I’m Sarah, I have a design business in Vancouver called Dohmain.

[The Draughtsman Restaurant]

 

[Sarah and her family are being served food in a restaurant.]

 

The motto on my site — and sort of how I approach why I do what I do for clients — is, “never let you or your brand get too tired.”

 

[Husband with son on his shoulders; Palm Springs Art Museum.]

 

[Sarah’s working at home while her family is playing in the pool.]

 

As soon as I get somewhere new, all I am is inspired, and I want to be working. So I have to be really conscious to close my computer, not answer email, and just enjoy my family.

 

[Sarah gives her baby son a kiss in the pool.]

 

I see travel as an investment. Clients’ demands are so hectic.

 

[Sarah’s playing cornhole with her young son.]

 

[Sarah and her family are entering the Faye Sarkowsky Sculpture Garden.]

 

If you can just turn it around and realize that…

 

[Sculpture Garden]

 

[Sarah’s taking a photo of her husband and kids outside the garden. The young boy’s eating an ice cream cone.]

 

…your travel experience is going to benefit your clients as well as yourself, you must keep it in your life.

 

[Ice Cream & Shop(pe)]

 

[Sarah’s husband’s holding his baby son.]

 

It keeps your eyes open; it’s that breath of fresh air.

 

[The family’s having breakfast together.]

 

Being exhausted right now with young children is so common.

 

[Demuth Park]

 

I often think, well, “how am I going to be inspired today?”

 

[Sarah’s kid is running. Sarah’s smiling at the camera.]

 

…or if I do plan a trip, what’s going to be inspiring about that trip? Because I’ll be so tired.

 

[An airplane flying overhead; bird’s-eye view of Palm Springs.

 

It’s that whole change of scenery.

 

[Palm trees; Sarah’s taking in her surroundings; hot air balloons.]

 

You’re sort of forced to open your eyes.

 

[Sarah’s walking in the middle of a desert plain with mountains in the background; she stops and closes her eyes.]

 

You’re looking at this completely curious surrounding and it takes your head out of that fatigue.

 

[Sarah opens her eyes at a new location and smiles at the camera.]

 

[The Shops at Thirteen Forty Five]

 

Palm Springs is having this sort of rejuvenation. Everything old is new again. There’s this huge new design influx.

 

[Sarah’s browsing The Shops at Thirteen Forty Five with her baby in a wrap over her chest.]

 

[House address numbers; wire sculptures]

 

The house address numbers, the curious wire sculptures in people’s gardens…

 

[Sarah’s browsing cacti]

 

…the manicured cactus assortments; it’s outstanding to look at.

 

[Sarah’s sitting outside the Palm Springs Visitors Centre, smiling.]

If you daydream about all these winter escapes or weekend escapes, just book it.

 

[The family’s arriving home.]

 

…the moment you book it, you’re almost on vacation already.

 

[Sarah closes her work laptop and heads outside to relax by the pool with her kids who are playing in the pool]
