Cactus Monday: Sedona

 Prickly Pears and Mountain View

It's been a while, but I'm back!  Life is sort of chaotic right now, as we are trying to get our new house set up in time for house visitors and still going out and enjoying the sights of Arizona.  We had some friends visit from back home in Maryland, and stayed with their Mom at her house in Sedona.  It was my first time there and I absolutely fell in love with it.  Sedona is only about two and a half hours from where we live.  A little less then a trip to Ocean City for my friends and family back East.  I would trade Sedona for a weekend getaway any day for Ocean City!!! 

Just look at these pictures:

Red rock trail overlooking mountain views

A cute little red biplane. 
The plane sorta looked familiar, but when I saw this sign it was kinda weird.  I mean. . . look at my blog header!  Sedona looks exactly like it!!! 

Next week we will be going to Vegas, which we have been to twice.  My husband and I got married in Vegas almost 10 years ago.  We thought it fitting to drive there and make a vacation of it with friends and family flying in for a 10 year vow renewal ceremony.  Same place, same day!  Not much art creating lately, but certainly lots of excitement.

I'll be back creating soon, don't worry!

You must have visited Sedona in your dreams to get that perfect header. lol
We visited Sedona last winter and it is SO gorgeous! I did a few paintings there of those fab red rocks and mountains. Such a beautiful place.
