Why We Love Palm Desert

Here are some photos to illustrate why we love to visit Palm Desert...

natural beauty
4+ miles of walking in the sun every day
cribbage & gin rummy
wine and appetizers before dinner
great restaurants
super shopping
traditions: birthdays, Pasta Night, Thanksgiving
and the best reason of all: FAMILY TIME.

Your family is adorable. I'm thankful that you had a chance to get away and spend time together. Your parents always look so cheerful and happy.

I LOVE all the pictures. I am so happy you shared.
this will sound dumb...but it Palm Desert the same as Palm Springs? We spent about 4 days in Palm Springs on our honeymoon and just loved it.....
take care,

Suz, it's not a dumb question at all. Yes, Palm Desert is about a 15-20 minute drive southeast of Palm Springs. It is newer, and attracts a different crowd than PS. That whole area is also known as the Coachella Valley.

Every picture has a story. So much personality in everyone's expressions!

I'm just sitting here with my mom chatting about our day with you. We didn't want it to end. You and your family are a blessing in our lives. I love being around you guys!

Of course, I'm wearing my hat too! It will always remind me of our fun day in Poulsbo. Many more to come...
