Christmas 2004 will always have a special place in my heart. It was the year I refreshed my eBay browser like a madwoman trying to get my hands on a pair of UGG boots. I scored big when I realized that although the women’s sizes were completely sold out, I could fit into a large kids’ size. I only just retired that original pair last year—to say they carried me through a lot would be an understatement!
Like me, UGG has come a long way since 2004. But the brand’s place in my heart has never wavered, so when received an invitation to a Joshua Tree retreat hosted by Darling in collaboration with UGG, I cleared my schedule and packed my desert gear! It was a privilege to spend a few days with a top notch group of women, exploring outdoors and connecting over seriously good food and serious real talk. Head to the UGG blog for the full rundown of the trip!
