The first week of March found our routine turned a bit upside down. My 2 day seminar in Palm Springs left PR Dad with picking up The Phi from school duties and it found us in Palm Springs for two evenings in a row. I really do love that town.


An iconic sign from an iconic town

One of the galleries on HWY 111
was showcasing items from the man who dressed Marilyn Monroe.
This picture was shot at night and through a window,
but the dress still came out breathtakingly beautiful!

The effects of this economy have been felt even in sunny Palm Springs.
Lots of empty buildings.
Someone left a little message of love on an empty business window

Everywhere you look in Palm Springs is beautiful.
Everyday items are pieces of art

Friday afternoon found us once again at a bowling alley.
This picture is a reminder that life with The Phi is not all rainbows and butterflies.
She is a normal 3 year old with a normal 16 year old attitude.
But that shirt.....she inherited it from her dad.
From when he was a little boy on bowling leagues.


The family that bowls together....stays together

I wear PR Dad's tshirts to bed all the time. The Phi asked me why I wear Daddy's shirts all the time. I told her that when Daddy's works late and I miss him I can wear one of his old shirts and smell him and not miss him so much. Of course she wanted to wear one too. Then later that night when I went to check on her I found her like this. A neck pillow on her heard like giant hair. She is even funny in her sleep!
...... and always the silliness

    You just have a way of capturing the beauty in everything. Even a three year old tanty.

    That dress DID come out beautifully! I LOVE the bowling shots-- particularly the one of the shoes, but I think the pouty face in front of the lane is my favorite! :)
