Weekend in Sedona, Arizona

Traveling to Arizona was so exciting for me! I hadn’t been there since I was a teenager so I had forgotten what it was like – and it surely did not disappoint. This northerner was not used to the dry heat in May or seeing so many cacti. The drive from Phoenix to Sedona was […]
