So excited to see what 2019 will bring!

They may be houseless but their home is cozy and their backyard is huuuuge!

Beachside in AZ - Roosevelt Lake, AZ
October 19 - 26, 2018

Arizona has some of the most incredible scenery in the world. Being an AZ native, I didn’t really come to appreciate how truly diverse it is until my adulthood. Brian and I got to spend a week only feet from the water at Roosevelt Lake. We felt like we had our own little strip of paradise.  We were awaken every morning by the sound of water slapping the beach and a lone watercraft skimming the glass like water.  Sunsets were incredible.  If you have an opportunity to visit AZ in your RV or tent, Roosevelt lake is a must!  Almost forgot to mention, Bald Eagles and Osprey inhabit the area in Fall and Winter so the camping closes in mid-November.  #lyfuninterrupted #rooseveltlake #rvliving  #beachsideAZ


Halloween in AZ

The weather was GORGEOUS!  Brian and I have been using the same set up for years. We so enjoyed seeing the little ones in their costumes and literally lost count of all the Unicorns that came by. Must have been the go to costume this year.

We have friends in Egypt!

In a chance meeting at the AZ State Fair's King Tut and Egyptian Treasures Exhibit, we met Mr. Tarek Ragab, the President and CEO of the exhibit.  Brian happened to be filming the exhibit contents when Mr. Ragab asked if he wouldn't mind sharing a copy.  Of course he said "yes"!  Not only did we get the insider scoop on how the exhibit contents came to be (they're faithful reproductions of the real thing in Egypt), but we also learned of its history and a little about Mr. Ragab's travel history and presentations to dignitaries - including former President Jimmy Carter.   The video is now uploaded to the Egyptian Arts Center website.

For our troubles (really no trouble at all!), Mr. Ragab presented Brian with three papyrus scrolls and promised if we're ever in Egypt to look him up!!  How cool is that?

The Arizona State Fair 2018 

It's the time of year when leaves start to turn beautiful colors of orange, red, yellow and brown (so we've been told).  Pumpkins are plentiful in the grocery store and Halloween decorations populate the aisles of every other store.  It's Fall!! And that means the arrival of the AZ State Fair.  Brian and I spent an afternoon capturing the sights and sounds along with some really "bad for you" food.  Take a peak!
