Are you going stir crazy? Is it time to get a little break from home, work, children…just check out for a bit?
It is for me! My husband & I like to take a break close to home from time to time.
Where do you like to go to relax, de-stress and just breathe? Living in Arizona provides us with some fabulous places to go. I know there are more we have yet to discover. Here are just a few of my favorite places that are only a car ride away.
L’Auberge de Sedona, is a beautiful tranquil resort in Sedona, Arizona. One of my favorite places to go in Arizona is Sedona. The resort is situated on Oak Creek in the heart of Sedona’s Red Rock Country. I adore this place!
The Phoenician, set against Camelback mountain is pure luxury featuring a beautiful pool area to relax. The grounds are meticulous and the staff is beyond attentive. They really take care of you at the Phoenician. The summer time is the less expensive time to stay here. 🙂
The Royal Palms Resort and Spa, pure romance is how I describe this resort. Beautiful luxurious property reminds me of a European setting with Palm tree’s added. The resort offers casitas, estate rooms and villas. We stayed in a casita years ago. A great place to go to relax in the heart of Scottsdale.
The Westin Kierland Resort, is a beautiful resort with a golf course and spa, with a huge pool with fun amenities like the lazy river and flow rider. More fun with the family maybe but still a great place to get away to right in what some call “new” Scottsdale.
I do hope you have some favorite places to get away from it all where you live. If we can’t get away to a hotel or resort, sometimes we hang out in our backyard when all the kids are in school and at work. We might take our work outside by the pool or just take ourselves with no work and just relax in the sun. We all need to take a break and clear our minds from the clutter. Don’t forget to take yours. I would love to hear the places you go to relax, please share in your comments.

It’s been a busy month of travel. We went to Paris which I shared in my last blog then we hopped on a plane to Kansas City for my husbands alumni weekend with the Kansas City Chiefs. We had not been back to Kansas City for about 5 years, life has been pretty busy since we adopted our nieces & nephews. (Do you Really have 8 Children?) We had some free time before the event which gave us a chance to visit the Jazz Museum and the Negro League Baseball Museum. Both were fantastic! I would highly recommend a visit if you are in Kansas City.
The Chiefs events consisted of Saturday night tour of the locker room area, cocktails, dinner and the induction of Priest Holmes into the Chiefs Hall of Fame. It was a very special evening catching up with some of JJ’s former teammates, coaches, Chiefs owners, staff and their wives. Sunday was game day, the alumni signed autographs before the game. It was a great game, the Chiefs vs Jets. Chiefs beat the Jets 24 -10! The Chiefs fans have always been the best fans that I have experienced. Arrowhead stadium is a great place to see a game. I don’t know if all NFL teams host an alumni weekend like the Chiefs, but, my husband and I have the utmost respect for the Chiefs and their care of former players. They really know how to make sure the alumni feel like an important part of the Chiefs organization. JJ & I want to especially thank Allen Wright the Chiefs equipment manager who we have fond memories of when JJ played for the Chiefs and who has always made sure that the alumni feel extra special.
Thank you to the Hunt Family and the entire Chiefs family! Looking forward to next years Alumni Weekend. 🙂
