i am lucky to have grandparents who live in a beautiful, relaxing and warm climate that's just a quick plane ride away.
i am also lucky to have my grandparents.
they are truly THE cutest. they are 91 and still so in love with each other. they start to miss one another when they are in separate rooms. they are so good to one another and can also be sassy with a sense of humor. i love watching them together. this june is their 70th wedding anniversary. omgomgomg. i love them so much.
pete and i just went down there for 5 days to visit my g-parents, spend some quality time in the sunshine, and also see our friendzies for the weekend.
^ mt. rainier always so majestic from the plane.
the grapefruit trees at my grandparents' place were brimming with these monster grapefruits! we plucked em off each afternoon for the next morning's breakfast. they smell incredible right off the tree. and they're HUGE and so juicy.
my granny used to have grapefruit halves set out in the morning when my family would be down there visiting - and she'd always pre-cut around the little wedges so it was easy to eat. what a sweet dear. it's the most pleasant time there in the morning. sitting out on the front patio with fresh grapefruit & coffee, the view of the desert mountains, palm trees, birds chirping, and the smell of all the warm flowers. all the feels.
it was super hot. about 105 degrees each afternoon. none of the elders even wanna go outside in these temps, so we had the pools all to ourselves the entire time.
^ early birds at arrive. avo toast and mimosas by the pool, don't mind if i do!
pool boyz & margaritas. so fun to lounge around with marisa & foster on a saturday morn.
we had a fun & funny cinco de mayo!!!! so happy to have this arrangement with our pals who live in LA now and they've been driving over to the desert the last couple times we've been in palm springs. love ya maris & fos!
^ grapefruit pluckin' time.
^ this one goes out to my girl A.Jo.
^ night moves.
we did an early morning hike at tahquitz canyon that was pretty quick and fun. there was a pretty little waterfall oasis at the end.
always a glorious chill time spent in the desert. when you're laying poolside staring up at palm trees with a HOT breeze over your bod, its quiet, the birds are chirping and you can smell the desert flowers, you've hit peak relaxation.
be back, p.s.!
