Palm Springs was everything I could of hoped for and more! We spent the weekend lounging in the pool, listening to Neko Case & The National (perfect desert music, I must confess), and played board games until the cows came home. We had chocolate chip pancakes for breakfast, watermelon for lunch and barbecue chicken for dinner. The only time we left the house was to take a field trip to The Ace Hotel for a midnight cocktail under the stars. I do believe I returned home three shades browner, two pounds heavier and an infinitely and thankfully more relaxed.
