The weekend I wish didn't have to end!

 My heart is so full after this weekend!  Hannah flew in from Michigan on Thursday, and left to head back home early this morning - I am so sad to see her leave! I am already planning our next trip... she will be leaving for the World Race in July, so time is limited, and I am insistent on seeing her one last time before she is out of the country for 11 months!

Here are some photos from our weekend together exploring Scottsdale, Sedona, and the Grand Canyon... And other than a flat tire (more on this story tomorrow...), I couldn't have asked for a better weekend!


Dinner (and Halloween people watching) at Citizen Public House

Enjoying opening day of the Starbucks holiday drinks... Getting our peppermint mocha on!

The beautiful red rocks of Sedona

Apple cider in Oak Creek Canyon

Enjoying the Grand Canyon - I don't think I could ever get sick of these views

Mather Point - just in time for the sun to start setting

Lunch at the Original Chop Shop after some shopping

Blow outs at Drybar

Dinner with John at Olive and Ivy

And while we were off adventuring, John was busy fly fishing the Colorado River at Lees Ferry

  14. Lovely photo update.

    The Grand Canyon looks amazing. I've never been but hopefully one day I can.

    Do you like apple cider? I had it once in NY but it was a bit too thick and pulpy for my liking... and warm. bleh. lol
