A Few Pics From the Weekend


Hubby and I double dated with my parents over Mother's Day weekend and took a road trip to Flagstaff, which is located in nothern Arizona.  We stayed at a cabin in the middle of what felt like nowhere and completely unplugged.  You could hear the wind talk through the tall pines and the air smelled fresh and pristine.  We lazily napped on a hammock, grilled ginormous steaks, stayed warm by a bon fire, perfected the s'more, gazed at millions of stars, talked about life, visited one of the seven natural wonders of the world, the Grand Canyon, and celebrated Mother's Day at the El Tovar, which is an inn/restaurant that is 106 years old.  It was the perfect weekend.  I hope you all had a perfect weekend/Mother's Day too!

I'm just looking at these pictures thinking, "are you kidding me!?" They're unreal. I feel like this place should go on my place of 'must see'.

I think Flagstaff would be such a great place to live... easy drive to Phoenix for some sunshine and warmth, but you'd get all the seasons!

love those style sunnies.... very chic as usual!
