Photobombed by a palm tree

I spent the weekend in Indio, California with my good friend Kristen and her family, plus several other families I got to meet and know for the first time. Yes. It is hot here. The temerpature climbed up to 111 degrees on Saturday, and when my friends at home found out I was traveling here they almost had me involuntarily committed. WHY? Why would I purposely go to the Inland Empire in August.

I absolutely adore this heat. Give me 111 degrees over three feet of snow any day. I find it soothing and totally restorative.

A great weekend with great people. Can’t wait to do this again. Red Solo cup FOR THE WIN.
