So we missed our 1st anniversary. Micah was out of town and by the time he got back, we both seemed to busy to really celebrate. We managed to have some cream puffs (we did that instead of cake at the wedding) and a bottle of Cava we saved from the wedding, but that’s it. We’ve never been anniversary celebration people. We’re more birthday and Christmas people. I don’t even know if we have ever celebrated our dating anniversary. When people ask me how long we’ve been together, I tell them about 5 or 6 years.
We’re changing all that. We’re going celebrate our anniversary. To celebrate, we’re headed here:
We’re hoping to swap grey Seattle in November for Sunny Palm Springs. Actually, our real destination is Joshua Tree. Our first trip together was to Glacier National Park so I thought our first anniversary trip should be to another National Park. Plus, it’s Joshua Tree and paper comes from trees and the 1st Anniversary is the paper anniversary – get it? I know, it’s a stretch.
We used our Alaska Air companion coupons for the airline tickets and Priceline to get rooms here, Riviera Palm Spring:
I really wanted to rent one of those beautiful midcentury modern houses but they are way to big and expensive for just 2 people. Neither of us have been to the area and are really excited. Anyone have any Palm Springs or Joshua Tree recommendations?
