For me it was the most relaxing and treasured break for the kids that I can remember having enjoyed this much. And now April is around the corner if you can believe it! I m truly counting down the days till summer starts.
Recently our family took a a little trip to Arizona for our cousins wedding. It was so wonderful on so many levels. It just so happened that the wedding was going to land on the weekend of my birthday so another (unintentional destination birthday this time) was going to happen for me.When we left home this is our beautiful view mind you but a heck of a lot colder then what I'm about to show you;)
This is what awaited us..
Arizona did not disappoint , it delivered its sunny skies and desert beauty and then some
|Flintstones Park anyone?|
|The road going towards Grand Canyon..up the Mountains..I was terrified|
|This was the moment i realized i left the battery for my Canon at the house...yep i did that|
so i was had to rely on the good old iPhone to capture this day
|Capturing Elijah capturing his Dino pic...he didn't want anyone in any of his pictures he took with his disposable camera. Hilarious!|
|It was so unreal, amazing, majestic and glorious.|
|This tree so neat also it was a safe place to take a group picture:)|
It was an emotional day for me. I cried off and on throughout the day feeling fragile about how meaningful this birthday was to me. Last year i was no where near this emotional about my birthday and then all of sudden a week before my birthday i started to reflect so much on this day coming..I was going to turn 31. I remember my mom being that age. weird. I remember when certain friends turned that age and at that time it seemed to be so far off for me to be there embarking into my thirties myself.
A little bit of fear mixed in with excitement came when i went to God for clarity and determination to make this next decade of my life even more full with love, freedom, to give more and not just with my resources but with my time. I want to be stretched more to push past my comfort zone.
Not living in my comfort zone is my thing this year. Its my favorite
Many blessings to you and yours, Good Friday is tomorrow praying its a great one:)
