How was everyone’s Halloween? My husband, Yorkie and I threw some last minute costumes together and headed over to my parents’ house for homemade chili, rolls and sugar cookies! We got to see all the siblings and nieces and nephews dressed up, and then we all went trick-or-treating! It’s a tradition that I always look forward to.

A few weeks ago, Krystal and I took a drive out to the Superstition Mountains. As we took in the sprawling view of the surrounding mountain and the only word that came to my mind was “majestic.” I stood there in awe and wonder, as the sunset, painted in myriad of hues, splashed across the sky. It was completely breathtaking. Being surrounded by something so massive made me introspective. I realized the only other thing that can trump that feeling is standing next to the ocean. I’ve always loved the beach, and in the past if I you had asked me to choose a cabin over a beach house, it would hands down be a beach house. After all, going up north was boring! There was simply nothing to do in those small towns, no cell reception, no shopping and the quietness was just plain eery. But as I grew older, I found the peace and serenity that came with being remote and unplugged was something I craved. It would be a dream to be able to afford one, let alone both. But crazier things than dreams have come true, so maybe one day mine will too. 🙂

So thanks, Superstition Mountains, for being a beacon of inspiration that day. A visit to see you sparked my desire to embark on a trip to soak up the beauty of Sedona. Photos coming soon!
