Wedded Bliss

On an overcast afternoon, some years ago on this day...
and more recently and a few pounds later....
My husband and I usually like to take a mini vacation for our anniversary. An Arizona destination (like Sedona or Tucson) is usually where we head, but from time to time we'll take a quick trip to out favorite city in the United States... San Francisco! It's only about 1 1/2 away by plane, or we might drive (12 hours!!!) to get there.



Today I took the day off, and depending on the weather (we're due for heavy snow in Northern Arizona), we might head down to Prescott, AZ. Arizona's first state capitol, It's a wonderfully quaint town with gorgeous Victorian buildings, a string of real "Old West" saloons called Whiskey Row, and it's an Antique lover's paradise. The picture above is of the town in the 1800's. If we go today, I'll snap a more recent shot!





Thanks so much for everyone who has stopped by recently to leave such sweet comments about the valentines. It was such a treat to share them with you!

Happy Anniversary. I would love to visit San Francisco some day. My DH's uncle has a home there and he (DH) has visited and really enjoyed it. Prescott sounds wonderful too.
