I'm back.

John and I just returned from a trip to Sedona, AZ.- we were there for our anniversary. 
Sedona is known for it's beautiful and majestic red rocks.
This is Bell Rock, one of my favorites.
We totally enjoyed our week climbing the rocks and walking the trails.  Climbing those big red rocks taught me, again, about trust.  There were many times that I wasn't sure I could go further.  John would encourage me over and over again until I mustered up the courage to take one more step.  What a metaphor for life, having the courage to take one more step forward

In the evening we often ended up in the hot tub, with a cocktail in hand, of course.  We met some wonderful and fun people while relaxing and reminiscing about our adventures of the day.  I met 2 incredible women - I hope to stay in touch with both of them.  It wasn't until the last day that I learned one of them is about to become a "brave girl" and finally push thru her fear to move toward her dream.   I know how exciting and scary that can be, changing your whole prospective about your life and where it is going.  Yet with each step forward, even each baby step,  the fear starts to loose it's intensity and you get to reap the rewards.  Just like when I pushed thru the fear of climbing, by going one more step up on the red rocks it gave me confidence to keep going.  It was then I reaped the rewards to sit at the very top of Cathedral Rock and receive all the energy it had to offer.  AND how sweet it was!!!
I'm all charged up!!


  1. Such a lovely, inspiring post with beautiful pictures as icing on the cake - thank you for putting a big smile on my face!

  2. We went to Sedona about 4 years ago and it was so beautiful. I wish we could've stayed longer as we were with someone really sick who just needed to rest. Hopefully someday I can get back there and feel the beauty and peace.

    Great pictures*


  3. Those pictures are just surreal! How amazing;D

  4. Hi Teresa
    My niece visited Sedona just last month and she posted all her photos of FB. It made me feel like I took the journey with her - it was very spiritual and uplifting.

    Thanks for inviting me to visit your blog, I've had a lovely visit!
