palm springs trip
Ken and I had the awesomest trip to Palm Springs last week! We were celebrating our 11th anniversary and we didn't take the kids. Can you sense why it was awesome?
This is the second year that we stayed at Ace Hotel Palm Springs. We love it there. It has such a special, unique vibe. We feel warmly welcome, even though most of the guests are much younger and much hipper than we. Basically it is us, young beautiful tattooed people, and lots of cute gay couples. But everyone treats us normal and I love the feel of the place. One of the things I particularly like is the good design all throughout the hotel. They don't try to make it look green and verdant. Rather, the gorgeous desert landscape is played up. Also, the attached restaurant is innovative and delicious. They serve french press coffee and the best kale salad ever.
We spent our days lounging and reading by the pool, going on a hike (we rode the aerial tramway up to the cool mountain top), seeing two movies, eating out, and spending a lot of quality time together. It is amazing to reconnect and spend time without kids. I'm so grateful for my parents and older kids for watching the little boys. Thanks, all!
I very much want to get back to blogging in this space, but summer is turning out to be nearly as busy feeling as the school year. I do want to return to this space soon with more posts so hopefully I will. Meanwhile, thanks for reading!
