It could be because we already live close to the ocean that the beach isn’t my destination of choice, or because I don’t ski or snowboard and am lukewarm on hiking that the mountains have never captured my heart, but I find peace in the desert- Palm Springs especially. The dramatic mountains, the rare occasion that you need a jacket, the peaceful views of golf course after golf course, the spas…. I mean really, what is there to stress about?
The days definitely go slower and family time is in abundance. We swim, we cook, we take walks on a whim- it’s the way I would choose to live my life if pesky things like responsibilities didn’t get in the way.
Vacations are not only necessary for a time-out from everyday life; it also serves as a reminder on how we should be living it.

Fun tablecloth at lunch.
Obligatory outfit pic.
I’d like to say the rain there is a rarity, but it has rained in Palm Desert when we’ve visited at least three different times.
Snow on the mountains after the storm.
Two babies in the tub- doesn’t get much cuter than that.
Babe was fascinated by the coots on the property. (My immature self thinks that is the funniest word ever.)
Sunsets in every color.
