Palm Springs

Palm Springs was a mecca of the old-time stars and their mid-century modern homes.  Each time I drive in from Las Vegas, my heart jumps at the sight of the palm trees and windmills with the desert mountains as a backdrop.  This trip, The town is decorated for Christmas, incongruos because of the sunny, warm tropical background.  It was a quick four days of connecting with old friends and making new ones. 

Usually I stay in a vacation rental, but this trip I was in a newly renovated hotel.  The owners had done a great job of recreating the vibe of the Hollywood heyday and I went back in time, pretending I was Lauren Bacall or Joan Crawford, only less cool.
