I took a bit of a break . . .
My hubby had a tournament in Las Vegas . . .
Like “little boys” anxiously waiting for this game to end . . .
~ ~ so they can “play” . . . (hubby is standing on the far right) a gorgeous night in Vegas.
Thanks to my friend Claudia for taking this great pic!
We decided to take a few extra days before the tournament . . .
~ ~ to travel to Sedona, Arizona and the Grand Canyon.
It was our very first time visiting these places and they surely did not disappoint.
Pictures cannot capture the beauty of the areas we visited.
When we first drove into the town of Sedona . . .
~ ~ our jaws literally dropped. I have seen pictures . . .
~ ~ ~ ~ however, you know the saying how pictures truly never do anything justice.
We stayed at the gorgeous Enchantment Resort in Sedona . . . and it was truly enchanting!
When the “bellman on the golf cart” took us to our “casita” . . .
~ ~ opened the door . . . and this is what we first saw . . .
A bed of roses . . . and robes at the foot of the bed . . .
~ ~ would make any girl happy!
That next morning, I enjoyed my coffee in front of the fire in our room. . .
~ ~ talk about what a way to start the day.
A little more of this room later . . .
In the meantime, after breakfast we started the day with this:
A “Broken Arrow” Pink Jeep tour of the canyons…it was soooo much fun!…
Mainly in the Oak Creek Canyon . . . the canyon made famous by the many “Western movies” . . .
~ ~ we could feel the spirit of John Wayne there!
When we travel, we take our granddaughter’s “Flat Stanley” with us . . .
~ ~ Oddie, a Moshi Monster.
Here he is with us on the Pink Jeep Tour . . . Oak Creek Canyon, Sedona, AZ.
And he braved the “Big Canyon” . . .
Oddie braving hanging on a branch over the Grand Canyon.
We took a 10 hour “Pink Jeep” tour to the Canyon….it was awesome!
I promised my hubby that I would refrain from doing much “social media” on our trip.
To enjoy every minute and take in the views and experience. . .
~ ~ so I was a bit absent from my blog . . but did manage to sneak a few Instagram moments!
~ ~ I showed you all one thing that Mary Alice presented to me . . .
~ ~ ~ ~ that is in my newly madeover bedroom.
Mary Alice brought me two more fabulous French vintage items.
Love this beautiful French linen monogrammed towel.
I thought that it would be great to soften the texture of the ironstone and vintage stool.
And how can you not get giddy over this fabulous French bread board!!!
Again, I thought by placing it under the ironstone, it would lend to added texture and color.
Thanks Mary Alice!!!
And . . . what a way to end our trip by a little surprise at the airport.
Our son left at 6 a.m. (we flew the red eye) to pick us up at the airport . . .
~ ~ our granddaughter did not have school that day, so she got up at the crack of dawn . . .
~ ~ ~ ~ as she wanted to “welcome us home” . . . talk about being the highlight of our trip!!!
No majestic mountains, canyons, or fabulous resorts can top that!!!
I have a busy week of catching up and hosting my sewing group and another round of company!
Hope your week is developing into a great one too!
