We first tried Airbnb when we all went to Sedona to celebrate my Mom's 60th birthday and really, really fell in love with the whole concept. It was such a nice change (and so much more affordable) than all staying in a hotel, so when we started to plan this weekend I immediately checked out Airbnb listings to find a place. We lucked out again, and found a great, kid-friendly spot right in the heart of Palm Springs.
We celebrated my birthday when we arrived Thursday night- my parents, sister and Lucy were waiting for us with party hats and cheesecake- and then Hank and I got to go out on Saturday to celebrate our anniversary. Sunday was Hank's birthday and we woke him up with donuts and coffee, and in between all of it was a lot of pool time, good food, and enjoying downtown Palm Springs.
It's weird, if you would have told me a few years ago I would be visiting Palm Springs twice in the span of a few months (or ever!) I probably wouldn't have believed you. But we've really fallen in love with that quirky little town. It's a quick drive and feels like you're a world away once you're there. Have you been there? If so, what did you think? And I'm also curious- have you ever tried Airbnb? If you haven't take a look at all the awesome places all over the world when you get a moment. And full disclosure, that's my referral link, so you will get $25 credit when you use the service and so will I. I've also heard Home Away is a great, similar site. Any recs for that one?
And of course, here are a million photos from our weekend- mainly photos from my regular camera, which I edited with A Beautiful Mess actions. There are also some from my iPhone mixed up in there too.
