Grand Canyon! Finally!



So, it took forever and a day, but we made it!
On Sunday, we woke up at the wee hours of the morning and drove off; it was a nice, uncrowded drive until the Canyon. Then, the adventure began.
Let's get this straight: I am NOT outdoorsy. I would rather chill on the couch with a book (or better yet, YouTube) than be walking around in the dirt. Yet... I have to tell you, the beauty was BREATHTAKING. I was so humbled by that massive structure (or hole, if you prefer)... It was amazing to be able to take it all in.

The WALKING part was not my favorite. I was not prepared, was wearing TOMS (instead of proper hiking shoes), and just did not want to walk around... which was kind of silly. I had fun going down the Canyon, but climbing back was another story... Mmmh, yeah, next time I go hiking there (if I ever do),  I'll make sure I am so in shape I can run a 10K.

I will let the pictures speak for themselves. Enjoy.

Love, xoxo

Phoenix, AZ: Great food, amazing friends.

Hello bloggers!

As mentioned in the previos post, we made it to Phoenix on Saturday afternoon. I actually did not take much pictures on Saturday, but I have an excuse: I was busy eating. My friend A. and her husband E. kindly welcomed us in their new home for the length of our stay; I also got to hang out with my old friend S. and was introduced to their dog Lucky (which I had already met via Facebook chat :) ). They had prepared a real feast, with tons of food, and an African staple: plantains, which are basically fried bananas. We ate like crazy and then went to swim. It was awesome.

The next day, Sunday, we watched the Euro soccer finals and slept some more :). At night, we went out to dinner at a really cute Japanese place, and walked around just a bit. It was simple, laid back, perfect. However, we could not hang out much because we had to wake up  at 3:00 AM to go to the Grand Canyon! WooHoo!!!

I was super excited because I got to wear that super cute sheer Maxi-Mini skirt. The color is ombre teal-white, the fabric is super light, it is flowy and beautiful... Did not even need any accessories :P

Thank you for stopping by, as always. Enjoy the pics. xoxo
