Arizona

You and I are given opportunities in life. Opportunities to make, break, give, take, grow, learn, run, walk, fly, drive, sing, dance, stay, or go.

I just returned from my week + vacation in Arizona. I visited Sedona with the family, then embarked on meeting not one, but two bloggers, for a hiking trip of the Grand Canyon.

I feel so lucky to experience new things and people. Each choice we make gives us new life and  a new way to think and feel.

My trip to Arizona (Sedona, the Grand Canyon, Flagstaff, and Phoenix) was incredible. The people I met, the experiences I had, and the food I ate (best part…? 😉 ), opened my horizons and let me embrace changes and exciting things. Not to mention, I was able to hang out with my family for 5 full days, pretty much completely free of bickering.

Sedona is beautiful

I could be happier with the outcome of my vacation. It was a blast.

A lesson learned through my long time away (hey, a week and a half is huge for me!) was to grasp every single opportunity to grow. And grow I did.

Big hugs to my new friends. I’m glad I got to meet all of you, hemp beer and all.
