A Fun Trip to Palm Springs

This is a post I wrote a few months ago and I realized I never posted it… so, here it is!  🙂

Once a year in November, my girlfriend, Rhonda (who I met in college) and I meet in Palm Springs to celebrate our birthdays and have a girlfriend weekend.  After college we moved from Oregon to the Los Angeles area together.  We have been meeting in Palm Springs since she moved to Arizona. I think we are going on 15 years!  WOW!  We always have such a great time, we talk, talk, talk and run around and shop, soak up some sun, chill by the pool and usually try to see some of the sights.  We always run out of time!  HA!photograph of Marilyn statue in Palm springs

This was the first time we saw the ‘Forever Marilyn’ sculpture by artist Seward Johnson.  The bronze and stainless steel sculpture is 26 feet tall and weighs 34,300 lbs. The sculpture was created in Chicago and debuted there on July 15, 2011 and then made its way across the states to Palm Springs arriving in May, 2012.  We decided to stop and take pictures (with our cell phones) one evening on the way back to our hotel. The sculpture was HUGE!  People standing under it were about as tall as her ankle.

This is the view of the mountains and palm trees from our hotel. I know a lot of my blogger friends have been posting pictures of snow and very cold weather, so I was thinking of all you when I took this picture.

And here is Rhonda and I goofing off for the camera!  (WOW, my hair has really grown, guess it is time for a new headshot! :))

This was my view on the drive home.  A great ending to a beautiful weekend!
