It's my first post back and I thought I'd share some photos and memories of our one year anniversary trip to Flagstaff. We took two days off work, packed an overnight bag and set out for a mini getaway to a few of our favorite places.
We took the longer route because we had to stop in Jerome for hamburgers at one of our favorite spots. Tim and I actually had one of our very first dates there, so it was nice to return on such a special day.
We got a room at the Hotel Monte Vista. Supposedly the place is haunted (I don't think it really is) but our room was beautiful, with a view of downtown. They have this great little bar on the corner of the hotel lobby called Rendezvous and it just so happened to be Mojito Monday, so after a quick drink we walked a couple blocks and had dinner at a sushi bar. It was such a beautiful night, just the right amount of chill in the air.
The next morning we woke up early to explore and have breakfast at Macy's European Cafe. I can't come to Flag without stopping in for a latte and food. If you find yourself in the area, Macy's is definitely a must! On our way back through the canyon to Sedona I asked Tim to pull over so we could hike down the side of a mountain. It was just before the monsoon storm, a few sprinkles and thunder in the distance, we found a creek and hundreds of furry caterpillars hanging on leaves.
I can't believe how quickly this first year of marriage has flown by. I feel like it was just yesterday I was sharing my vows in a tearful whisper to the love of my life. Before I know it we will be celebrating a lifetime spent together, I look forward to that day, when I can think back to this first anniversary, how simple but so beautiful it was.
