2015 was a BUSY year for me and after I was done, I was in much need of a vacation. So I decided to retreat to Palm Springs and take a few days to relax, explore and unwind. I went to Palm Springs for the 1st time earlier in 2015 for work, but I didn’t stay very long and didn’t have time to take in the full amazingness of the city and surrounding area.

My 1st must go to spot I visited as soon as I got there was Elvis and Priscilla Presley’s home. They only lived there a year, but it’s where they lived right after they got married and where they had their wedding reception after their famous elopement in Las Vegas. It was amid century lovers dream, so I was in vintage heaven.
