The Unofficial Ambassador of Palm Springs #kellygolightly #palmsprings

Happy Friday! Have any fun plans this weekend? We’re still unpacking but hope to do some furniture shopping and maybe get in a little pool time. Before we float off into the weekend, I wanted to share fun news: I’m on the cover of the Palm Springs Chamber of Commerce magazine, as “our city’s unofficial ambassador.”

 Mind blown! Here’s a peek at the spread inside. All photos by Fred Baby, whom without I would be nothing. He is the wind beneath my wings (er, Trina Turk cape dress). 😉

I shared this on my Instagram way back in February during the hubbub of Modernism Week, but wanted to take a minute to share it here, and finally soak it in for myself. Sometimes I feel like life is moving so fast these days, we don’t get a chance to celebrate the good, whether big or small. Do you ever feel that way too?

You know how much I love Palm Springs. Let’s face it — I can’t shut up about it! But for good reason. It’s the best! And I’ve even joked in the past that I should be on the tourism board. So I was beside myself when this arrived in our mailbox — even if I did kind of Secret the heck out it in my own way.

It’s an annual guide that goes out to every resident of Palm Springs. It’s also there to greet you, along with a giant blown-up version, when you visit the Palm Springs Chamber of Commerce. You should have seen our faces when Fred Baby and I walked into the Chamber of Commerce and saw that! It will be there for the rest of the year, as this issue is produced just once a year. I’m this year’s cover girl! Hey, it’s not often you can say that. About your happiest place on earth, no less.

You can read it online here.

 Truly, it’s such an honor. I’ll try to do you proud, Palm Springs! Now I’m off to clink glasses with my beloved, and the man who makes me look 10 times better in pictures than I do in real life. But hey, I’m not complaining.

Have a great one!
