Day 27 & 28 such a fun few days

So the girls get away was tons of fun. Laughter, games, shopping, pedicures, and let us not forget a little rain. Being the Oregon girls we are, we didn't let a little rain get in our way.  Nurturing friend time is so important. It's all too easy to get caught up in the day to day family life, work life, etc. etc. I have to remember to stop, take a breath, and make time for girlfriends. The non stop laughter that ends in snorts is soothing to my soul, and makes me happy just remembering it.

Trying to get out of Palm Springs was no easy matter. Plane was diverted twice, out of the gate twice, and then finally five hours after our original take off time, we were in the air and headed back to Oregon. Two hours in the air, and as we started the desent, water ran across the windows, oh yes, we were home, and the rain came out to greet us.




 Having citrus trees on the side of the property was such a plus! Fresh oranges for breakfast. Nothing like the oranges we buy in the store. So juicy, so sweet. Oh, if I could grow citrus here!




Linking up with Gina & Tamar

My goodness- I have not been to PS in forever!!! Sorry to hear that it was rough getting back- maybe someone wanted to you stay a bit longer :)

I love Palm Springs! Your photos of the citrus are truly amazing. I'm glad you had a wonderful trip!

Isn't airline travel the pits? You have to be there forever ahead, and then so many delays-yuck. You could almost drive faster!
Love those citrus shots, and the pool. Under a foot of snow here. Jealous.

Love the palm trees and the fruit--nature is so great and makes for perfect art. Sounds like a fun trip except for the return.
