Lesson #2: Just Say Yes.

Lesson #2 of the 12 Lessons of Christmas: Just Say Yes.  Or as my friend D. says, “YOLO > FOMO”

While I was in Chicago (for 2 very long, cold weeks), my girlfriend emailed with the details of a Palm Springs birthday getaway that was set to start 15 hours after my arrival finally back to Los Angeles. The boring part of me said that I needed to spend my weekend resting and doing responsible things like grocery shop and spin class. The fun part of me said, “What the f–k; let’s go!”

So guess what — I said yes, packed my air mattress up in my trunk, and drove to Palm Springs.

I had the best 24 hours of recent memory.

In was raining, never got warmer than 57 degrees, and yet we all had some desert cocktails and had a blast.
