Exploring Joshua Tree National Park

Did you know April 15-23 was National Park Week and to celebrate all national parks offered free admission on the weekend dates? I had no idea until the week was almost over. Not wanting to let the opportunity pass my family and I headed to Joshua Tree to take advantage of the killer deal. In […]

Dining at TRIO Palm Springs

Palm Springs Modernism Week 2017

Disclosure: I received complimentary admission to Modernism Week events. All opinions are my own.
