packing my bags

packing my bags for vacation

Joe needs a vacation sooo bad, so we're headed off to Palm Springs for some sun.  It's snowing heavily in Iowa right now, and while I kind of love it I'm looking forward to being warm.  We're renting a house with some friends and are planning a week of hiking, yoga, swimming, margaritas, massages and relaxation.  I'll be back here next week and am planning some Valentine's Day gifts for the shop.  In the meantime, if you follow me on Instagram (name wikstenmade) you can see my vacation pics as the week goes by.

Oh! How long will you be there? I'll be there next weekend for a Heather Ross sewing workshop. I hear the Living Desert zoo is wonderful, and there's a fine little art museum there as well, hopefully my husband will take my daughter. If you see a group of women with sewing machines, come say hello!

If you get a chance swing by the Ace Hotel and get the ceviche. Oh man. I still dream of it to this day.

Have a great time. Our favorites: chinese at Wangs in the Desert, and ice cream cones from Rite Aid.
