Friday Faves | December 4, 2020

Good morning everyone! I hope you all have had a great week. It has been nice to have a slow one after all of our Thanksgiving festivities. Even though we kept it very small this year, there was plenty of cooking to do and cleaning. We spent the week getting back into our routines and finishing our leftovers. Pie for breakfast? Yes please.

This is my first edition of my friday faves where I share random tidbits throughout the week. It can range from a newly discovered hiking trail, a new dish from a local restaurant, or a new beauty find. I hope you enjoy!

Sedona: Social Distancing Edition

Sedona: Social Distancing Edition

Good morning everyone! We just got back from a relaxing weekend in Sedona! After 3 months of just being at home, we needed a change of scenery. I’m grateful for the ability to stay home but it can wear on you after awhile. Arizona is technically re-open but with the recent news of our surge, we wanted to still play it safe.

We used to love spending the day wine-tasting pre-kids in Willcox or in Woodinville, Washington. I figured this was the perfect way to celebrate and spend some one-on-one time – the first since celebrating our wedding anniversary at The Parish in November.

Sedona Recap | Feb 2019

Sedona Recap | Feb 2019

Work and pregnancy got in the way of me working on this re-cap. We took this trip on February 15, 2019. Better late than never!

Whenever it comes to holidays like Valentine’s Day, Chris and I agree that we’d rather gift each other experiences than material items. We decided to book a family getaway to Sedona! I had always wanted to visit as the pictures looked absolutely beautiful! In addition to celebrating Valentine’s Day, we had just found out I was pregnant five days before our trip. The margaritas and wine-tasting would have to wait until next visit.
