Moorten Botanical Garden_001 - 1

Spring Break is finally here and I thought this week I would take a moment to look back at the trip I took to Palm Springs last year over spring break.

What are you planning to do this weekend? Last weekend I was cooped up in my house with the cold and rainy Washington weather, but this weekend I have escaped to Palm Springs. Over the course of the weekend, I am planning on visiting several places around the valley and then soaking up as much vitamin D as possible. Here are a few links around the internet for your weekend…
