My birthday weekend in Sedona

Good Monday morning to you, my friends.
What a fantastic weekend I had with my girl C, celebrating my birthday in Sedona, Arizona! We soaked up lots of fresh air and sunshine on a new-to-us hiking trail, ate yummy food, did some fun shopping, and found a super cool yoga class to attend yesterday morning. My heart is so full this morning, and my leg muscles are a bit wobbly. ;o)


For years Carrie and I have visited the same park and walking trail every time we go to Sedona, but this time we  found a new hiking trail recommended by a friend of hers. We vowed to go there again someday and take Doug, but we also vowed to try other trails in Sedona and not find ourselves in a rut, always going back to Soldier's Pass. Ah! It was SO beautiful...





 
There are a few points of interest along Soldier Pass Trail, including these "seven sacred pools." They were really cool to see, but a little tricky to photograph and get all seven of them in the same shot.
 
Ah! That SKY! And those pretty puffy clouds!!!


After our hike we headed back to town for a nice dinner at my favorite restaurant (The Hideaway) and some shopping and photo shenanigans. 


And there you have it, photos from my birthday weekend, 2015.

The past year of my life has been one of profound growth for me. I've accomplished some goals that have been waiting for me for a long time, and I feel poised and so ready for the next chapter.

It's a new day and age for me now!
Look at me go...

I love those pools!
Right now I wish I had a job that I could walk away from on the weekend. It seems to follow me constantly because I have projects that need to get done.
