Spring Getaway: Desert Daydreamin’

This post comes from our blog intern, Aubrie!

The southwestern sun beats down radiantly upon the sandy earth.  I bend down to pick a small yellow flower, careful not to graze any cacti nearby. I think to myself, “April showers, bring May flowers.” Yet, it is mid April and clearly the earth has not felt tears from the sky for months. In a world where water means life, the earth has still managed to find a way to thrive and display its detailed beauty. I place the bloom into the leather strap of my large straw hat.  When I turn back up to the sun I close my eyes and feel warmth rush to my lightly freckled cheeks. I give thanks to the desert sun for giving me a break from the rain and in turn rejuvenating my body. When a gentle breeze rustles through my woven poncho, I know it’s time to stand again and continue roaming. How marvelous it is to be able to experience and appreciate a place so unlike my own home.

Love your pictures! Makes me want to hop on my car and find the nearest desert here (though it’s probably going to take me at least 7 hours drive). If only it would be that easy! :)

I can’t get enough of those boots!

Love this! I have a friend in Sedona I would love to visit – soon!

Warm Regards,

Love these different looks! The pictures are great as well.
