We are spending the weekend away, heading to areas of gorgeous blue waterfalls with pools that are as blue as the sky. We’ll have views of tall cliffs and open skies. Of course I’m now dreaming of soft beds, and massages and pedicures…which isn’t part of this weekend, but a girl can dream!!
I’m joining the ranks for my first year in Havasupai. Our friends go every year and I’ve just never been. You see if I’m going to get a weekend getaway, my hope is to do the dreamy part where I get to relax and be pampered and SHOP of course =) But I’m sucking it up and joining the hikers with all of my belongings for 3 days in a relatively small backpack! Sheesh, who’d a thought I could pack so light?
I’ll sure miss my kids and hope they behave, unlike the little Miss who had me for a near 2 hour fit tonight.
Last year was a very sad and tragic year for this trip, you can read about it here.
I’m definitely feeling anxiety leaving my little family with this in mind and hoping for a better year to replace the bad memories. Also keeping Daxton’s family and Alisa on my mind as they face this milestone as well. Despite the rough fall, Alisa is joining us, she’s a fighter…I sure love that about her.
So, see you Sunday! In the meantime, pray for everyone’s safe return and also for the sanity of a sweet Aunt who dared take on my munchkins for the weekend, ear infection and all!
And now, for sleep, departure is only two hours away. =) This is ALWAYS how we roll…and I hate that about us.
