When you get the opportunity to ‘get away’ for a few days – do you take it?
You would assume that most of us would reply with a resounding “YES!”
Well, unfortunately there are sometimes that you have to say “No”.
Every year, my husband heads up to Northern Arizona for a conference. And each time, he invites me to go with him.
Now, it isn’t that I didn’t want to go – but life has a habit of getting in the way of “getting away from it all”.
But not this year! I was determined to go. So last week, we headed up to Payson, which is a small mountain town just 1 1/2 hours away.
While my husband was busy at his conference – I took the opportunity to take some pictures of the scenery around me…
Most of my photo-taking opportunities occurred at sunset.
I love how the sun makes the clouds look rosy, don’t you?
Besides the beautiful skies, I enjoyed the cooler temperatures.
We spent two nights and days. It really was a wonderful time and a welcome ‘getaway’ from the daily stresses of life.
As we drove down the mountain towards home, I was refreshed and ready for the week to come.
Life is now officially crazy again because the kids have begun school. (Our school district has 8 week summers and extended fall and spring breaks).
You know what? Every year it seems that I have to buy more school supplies then the year before.
**I finally came to that realization on Monday after I had made three separate trips to Walmart and then one to Staples.
I hope you are all enjoying your summer and have had the opportunity to get away 🙂
