Sedona, Te Amo...

One of my ultimate travel locations within the U.S. has always been Sedona. When my boss told me I had an assigment in Phoenix, AZ the first thing I did was look up the driving distance! I thought a friend of mine was living in Phoenix, but it turned out she had actually moved out to Sedona a few months ago and I was stoked! It was only 1 hour and 20 minutes away from where I was staying. She was working at a fabulous resort, Poco Diablo Resort, in the heart of the Scenic Red Rocks. I went 2 weekends in a row. It was breathtaking! The sunset made the mountains look like they were on fire. I felt so much peace and serenity, I couldn't help getting a little misty eyed while I sat on a bench watching that incredible sunset. Not to mention, I was also missing my husband. These trips keep getting harder, but I'm glad I have new bucketlist places to check off. More on my Arizona adventures coming soon! Happy Friday!

Uno de mis destinos de sueño dentro de los Estados Unidos siempre ha sido Sedona. Cuando mi jefa me dijo que tenía una tarea en Phoenix, AZ lo primero que hice fue buscar la distancia para guiar. Pensé que una amiga estaba viviendo en Phoenix y me llevé tremenda sorpresa cuando me enteré que estaba viviendo en Sedona hacía unos meses. Sólo queda a 1 hora y 20 minutos y ella trabaja en un hotel fabuloso, el Poco Diablo Resort, en el corazón de las montañas Red Rock. Fui dos fines de semanas de corrido. Estuvo espectacular! Cuando bajó esa puesta de sol, parecía que las montañas estaban encendidas. No pude aguantar la emoción y se me aguaron los ojos ante la belleza natural de ese lugar. Aparte de que estaba extrañando a mi esposo. Estos viajes de trabajo se hacen más difíciles con el tiempo, pero por lo menos puedo marcar unos cuantos lugares de mi lista. Más adelante les mostraré más sobre mis aventuras en Arizona!

What I wore / Llevaba puesto:
Top: Montage
Shorts: TJ Maxx
Jewelry: Huipil Market & Thomas Sabó
Shoes: Just Fab
