Hey there! It’s been a while since we’re last talked, hasn’t it? If your last couple of months were anything like ours it probably included a lot of festivities, running around, staring at at a calendar with a confused expression wondering how another week just sped by, making lists, checking them twice. You know the drill.
If this is your first time stopping by our little corner of the internet, welcome! If you’ve been here before, we’re glad to see you again, friend 🙂 Before we jump right back into the swing of things I wanted to give you a short update on what we’ve been up to. Alex got the opportunity of a lifetime to work on the beautiful Central Coast of California, and for the last month we’ve been living the dream in the most adorable city we’ve ever lived in. Just because we have a permanent address, it doesn’t mean we don’t still have beautiful places to show you. I still have pictures from Arizona, Colorado, and Hawaii that I can’t wait for you to see! I hope they inspire you to spend more time outdoors enjoying this beautiful Earth we get to call home. Also, in a couple of weeks we will be going to Canada, needless to day there will be more nature pictures (and hopefully more doughnuts). And finally, we live in the land of romantic rolling hills, vineyards, and ocean sunsets, and I look forward to exploring every nook and cranny and posting them here for you to see and maybe even add to your travel list.
As a celebration of the first post of the year, here are some pictures of the Grand Canyon at sunset. On the day we took these we weren’t expecting to go see the Grand Canyon until the next morning, but our GPS surprised us and took us through the park at sunset on our way to our hotel. The sky was incredible, and the colors on this screen don’t do justice to the shades of fiery red, smoldering orange, and cotton candy pink that streaked the sky that night. We parked the car and ran through the park like two kids at a candy store. The wind was harsh and cold, sending away most of the tourists back to their warm rooms and leaving the viewing area almost all to ourselves. I hold this memory near and dear to my heart because it was my first time ever seeing the Grand Canyon, and I can’t imagine a more stunning way to experience it. If you’ve ever seen it in person you know what I’m talking about. You can’t help but feel connected to the Earth and humbled that you got to see something so beautiful with your own two eyes. Without further ado, here they are.
