On my desk was 100 degree weather and cacti as we went back to Palm Springs to celebrate our 1 year anniversary! We stayed at the same hotel, The Parker, but didn’t do all the same things. To our surprise, there was a lot left in Palm Springs for us to explore even though we did so much last year.
WTF is up with all this “glamping” glamour people are talking about? I want to know why someone would subject themselves to no plumbing and no wifi. I figured I’d test this experiment out in Malibu, California. On my desk today, I’ll share the place I stumbled upon perched on a high (maybe the highest) peak in Malibu! Let’s go glamping people!
What’s on my desk today? A trip to Brussels. Yes, I saw the famous little boy peeing but that wasn’t enough for my husband and I to fall in love with Brussels. This post will lack much commentary!
First stop on our honeymoon, Amsterdam! As soon as we arrived into the city early morning around 7 am, my heart melted. I was in love. The city was quiet and the streets were empty. It felt as if we discovered a deserted gem. Charming is only the beginning of how I could describe this place. I turned to my husband and said,
From Amsterdam, we took a half-day trip to Zaanse Schans Windmills, Marken and Volendam, the beautiful Dutch countryside. You know those infamous photos of tulips flashed across every tour brochure for Holland? Well, guess what we discovered?

The great thing about being on the West Coast is that Hawaii is just a quick flight away to an exotic beach destination. I guess it’s a great thing to take advantage of after you move to the west coast, right? I had never been to Hawaii before and with President’s weekend falling on our 5 year anniversary, it seemed like a great choice for us. There was only one small challenge in preparing for our trip…
What to do in the North Coast? Avoid stepping on cow dung while admiring the magnificent natural beauty this coast has to offer. Trails line the edge of the land while cows graze in peace. I know that cow dung and fresh air sounds like a weird mix, like pairing silver and gold accessories (news flash it works), but you will find it harmoniously cohabiting in the North Coast. Just watch where you step.
Every morning the comical inn keeper at The Coast Guard Inn, Mia, will greet you with a few “…because I’m a Jewish mother…” jokes. If these jokes don’t amuse you, it’s okay because Mia’s other talent is making you a hot and delicious breakfast.
