Stand up if you think Arizona is ugly.
Now sit back down, son.
Even for those who have something against the desert landscape and find it “barren” or “boring” ( I’ve heard of these people and we will address this issue at a later date), there is some serious variety in this lovely state.
Now that school is out, my travel game is on. First trip? A journey to Cece’s hometown; Lakeside Arizona. Holy gorgeous check it out:
If you’ve never heard of the place (highly likely) it’s a lovely little gem of a town by Showlow. It is jam packed with lakes and mountains and trees and Cece’s big tight-knit family. She was bred and born and raised right in Lakeside, here’s a picture of her in her natural habitat
My favorite thing to do while exploring is to sit and to think. The fresh mountain air can do wonders for a foggy head. Beautiful places make me feel so close to myself and to God, my best meditations happen in nature. When I came back from thinking, Cece had made me a gorgeous flower crown!
Dear Earth, thanks for the adventure. Keep me in mind this summer, I’ll be around.
