A Getaway to the Mountains of Flagstaff

We’ve recently gotten a taste of freedom that we have missed for so long and with the Memorial Day holiday, we decided to escape the Phoenix desert  with a getaway to the mountains of Flagstaff, Arizona. Short, sweet and absolutely perfect. I don’t think anything could have possibly wiped the smiles off of our faces for those 48 hours. It’s funny how something so simply can completely change your life.

From the 2 hour drive and belting our favorite tunes, to introducing the kids to our tradition of Bun Huggers (an absolute must if you ever get the chance), bumming around downtown Flagstaff, a visit to Sweet Shoppe for some favorite treats and eating far too much all along the way. We could have done nothing at all and each of us still would have been in heaven. Here’s to many more summer road trips and to freedom to explore and make new memories.

    Oh, Miss Pedita – thank you for taking the time to enjoy this post! And hahaha – it’s a great effect, right? Purchase the course to catch ALL of the tips, but try out the Afterlight 2 app – it has a feature of “light leaks” that will add this filter to your photos 😉
