Palm Springs Vacation 2013

We were lucky enough to plan our winter vacation around Palm Springs Modernism Week this year. While we've been married for almost six years, this is the very first time we have packed up our bags during the winter months and went on a vacation solo. (We were lucky enough to travel to Costa Rica in 2009 with my entire family, but this was the first time just us!)

We arrived Friday, February 15th, and it was a glorious 10 days of sun, modern home tours, sharing my love of Palm Springs with Greg, and sleeping in a bit (since I haven't slept in much since Eames was born in 2011!) We did all of the touristy things there is to do in PS, and even ventured into LA for a day. We also drove through Joshua Tree National Park and visited La Brea Tar Pits - lots of fun things I hadn't done in years. It was my 11th trip to Palm Springs, and my very favorite of them all. Sharing my love to PS with Greg was something I've wanted to do for years.

While I'm back in the office today catching up on work, the crazy house project we have going on, all the bills sitting in my mailbox when we returned yesterday, and life in general, I'm reminded what an amazing trip we just returned from. The above photo I snapped one of the very first days and I'm quite certain I'll have it made into a canvas for the new house - I love it that much.

I'll try to share a bit more about our trip in the coming weeks - we went on amazing home tours and collected some ideas for our own house remodel. We met a couple of fun people at different social events throughout the week, and we got to spend some quality time with my beloved grandparents who live there.
