hitting the road…

5 Jun



Brian and I are hitting the road this morning en route for one of my favorite places…Sedona, AZ. We go to Sedona at least twice a year (Brian’s parents have a house there) but this will be a weekend of firsts for us…we are staying there a little longer than we usually do (a weekend always seems to go by too quick), driving instead of flying (we decided that we were both in need of a little adventure) and going alone (we usually bring a group of friends with us but this time around we wanted a mellow trip). I’m looking forward to doing a whole lotta nothing for five days.

Below is my Friday happy list- making a list of the little things that bring me joy each week helps me stay present.

20 things that have been making me happy recently…

pink peonies

watching Bloodline on Netflix

my new laptop- it’s love

planning out our summer calendar (so many weddings!)

wandering the streets of Venice on my morning walks with Frankie

lunches with Crystal

lazy Sundays at home with my family and a stack of magazines

the little dragon pandora station

haagen dazs vanilla ice cream

sipping coffee in bed with a view of our blooming garden

saging our home (more on that next week)

beach weather, pool weather & bikini weather is on the horizon

we’re going to Sedona for five days!

this quote…

ego says: once everything falls into place, I will find peace

spirit says: find peace and everything will fall into place 


What’s been making you guys happy recently?

      Isn’t that the truth! It’s such a special place.

    Oh my goodness – that photo is breathtaking! Please tell me you have it framed in your house? 🙂 I’ve never been to Sedona but I’ve only heard good things. I’ve heard the heat isn’t too bad because of low humidity? Also, morning walks have been one of my favorite things to do lately, too!

      Diane, you must explore Sedona sometime soon- it really is a magical place! You heard right about the weather. The elevation helps tremendously with the heat. Makes sitting by the pool bearable 🙂

    Our lunches make me happy too!! Love you! PS- Redmind me to bring you some sage that I have. It’s less potent in aroma and impossible to set things on fire with…. 😉
