In fact, Seattle's weather does not bother me very much at all. It only makes me REALLY appreciate it when Mr. Sun does decide to pay a visit. It just gets a little soul killing and mundane come February and the holidays are officially behind you when the cabin fever starts settling in. But then again I have a very astute boyfriend who gave me a winter desert vacation to Palm Springs for Christmas. If Mr. Sun wasn't coming to me, we were going to go looking for him. Why Palm Springs? My boyfriend's dad's Christmas present were tickets to see Anthony Bourdain speak down there. They didn't have to twist my finger very hard for me to admit I needed this reprieve from Seattle's winter wonderland.
There are no words to describe how wonderful the blue sky looked to me. Palm trees also help in giving the false sense of paradise... even though we're in a desert. There were no real plans for the trip other than to soak up as much vitamin D as possible and eat!
