girl’s weekend.

I know I promised that my next post was going to be about Oprah and angry travelers, but I started to write it and I got so fired up, I had to stop. So, new plan. I’m going to write about my weekend in Scottsdale, AZ with my mom and sis. Every year we escape to the sun for a girl’s weekend and we always have the BEST time doing a whole lot of nothing! As you can imagine, there was a lot of talking, eating, drinking cocktails, playing cards, drinking coffee and laughing. As it turns out, there wasn’t quite enough sunscreen or water (I came back a little sunburned and needing water)! I am so lucky to have a mom and sister who I enjoy spending time with! They are the best!

girl’s weekend

This weekend, I went to Scottsdale, AZ with my mom and sis for a little mother/daughter quality time. This is our third year going to Arizona for a girl’s weekend – I’d say it’s becoming a tradition!

As always, we had a fantastic time. We didn’t “do” much – but that’s the beauty of it. The purpose of the trip is to spend time together – just the three of us. We don’t go to Scottsdale to be tourists; we go there to be with each other.

You may be thinking, why do you have to go all the way to Arizona to spend time together? Because in Arizona we can control the variables. Nobody has to make dinner. Nobody has to run errands. And we get to choose the attendees – just the three of us. We can give each other our complete, undivided attention. We aren’t clouded by the distractions of daily life.

This weekend, we sun-bathed by the pool. We ate and drank. And we talked and laughed, a lot. To some, this might seem like a boring trip. To us, it was perfect. I feel so blessed to have such a wonderful mother and sister, and I feel so lucky to have spent another special weekend with them.




a blog for anyone, but mostly for me.
