Arizona moments

I know, I know. I've been a very bad blogger. I miss reading blogs but with my insane schedule I just haven't had the time! But I'm going to make the time soon...I miss you all!

I thought I'd do a quick post on what I've been up to in Arizona, besides working. ;)

Plus I think my posts have had way too many sponsored posts lately {not that I'm complaining}, but I just don't want sponsored posts to become the main aspect of my blog because that is not why it is here. It is here for me to reflect and share my thoughts with you all.

With that being said, I've been enjoying long walks with Tikko {my sweet Maltese that I've been dog sitting}, eating yummy food {maybe too much}, and taking a few adventures when time allows {I made it to Buffalo Exchange and ate some excellent sushi}. Maybe I will blog about that next. I also have been swimming for exercise and it's so refreshing with this heat!

One amazing thing about Arizona is the scenery and nature. Sure - it's really really hot, but the climate is so unique, unlike any other state I've been to. It's truly a desert land. It takes me back to the west (i.e. Tombstone, which I've actually visited) and everything else I grew up loving. My dad has a love for the west in the 1800s and even has a collection of ghost town bottles...hence why I love ghost towns and the desert.

Of course I'm an ocean dreamer...but I still love the desert and the mountains. Arizona also has some of the best sunsets I've seen. So here's a collage of some of the photos I've taken while taking Tikko out for walks near the house. This will give you a glimpse of what I'm talking about. See if you can find the fountain in the center of one of the pictures, which just so happened to be going off when we were walking on this particular evening. Gorgeous.
P.S. Have you entered into the Shabby Apple giveaway
I'll be having another giveaway on Friday so stop on by again! :)
