By Palm Springs standards, the party went late. I lost track of time and was still dancing with friends around midnight, enjoying a few laughs and eating way too many snacky-things for my own good. Every so often I would head over to the chocolate fountain and dip a mini cream puff under the stream of luscious warm, flowing chocolate and gobble it up. I can't control myself when it comes to chocolate, I'm afraid.
above: a blurry picture, but I snapped this photo above to capture some of the wonderful atmosphere on the grounds of their property. I don't know if it was the giant Booda statue in, or the myriad of glowing candles, but it was such a cozy area to relax and chat with friends.
