Postcard from Palm Springs

Dear Minnesota,
I'm sorry but we will have to break up (I know our relationship was tenuous at best)...I'm staying out west - I need to wake up with the sun on the mountains, warm up in desert temperatures, take a mid-afternoon dip in the pool, grill on a patio surrounded by lemon & grapefruit trees, and have drinks under palm trees outlined by the sunset...
xoxo, M

ps - can you tell I'm a bit smitten with Palm Springs? The little house we rented is beyond cute, has a perfect pool and Miss L is in heaven...oh and it was a super deal - highly recommend for for a family getaway this winter...a few blocks from a playground as well...

pps - Danielle from Domestic Dish is up for the Recipe Exchange today - her last recipe was fantastic so I'm looking forward to this one as well
