This weekend we went to Palm Springs for the AMEN conference. AMEN stands for Adventist Medical Evangelism Network. It's meant to be a time when medical and dental professionals/students can learn about mission service opportunities and network together. It was beautiful--this is the time of year when Palm Springs is actually tempting--the summer months are unbearably hot, but this weekend was in the 70's and 80's. Below is a view from our hotel window.
On our way home we stopped in Oak Glen and found a little fall. Thankfully we had brought our sweatshirts! It was SO beautiful!!! We hiked the trails and smelled the scent of fall leaves and apples. Crunching through the forest colors was so refreshing! Later we tasted apple samples and cider. It brought back strong, happy memories of Michigan--after all, fall is the time of year we started dating and got engaged. Enjoy the pictures below!

My hot husband!

Fall is great!


  1. I'm so glad you got to enjoy some fall weather! Ours is about done since it was really dry this year. We didn't get as many of the pretty colors. The leaves mostly just dried up. Looks like you guys had fun!
