10 Things I Love about Arizona

Since this is the month of love, I thought I’d make a list of 10 things I love about Arizona.cactus love

  1. Of course the warm temperatures would be at the top of the list.
  2. How clean the roads are, and how at night the lane reflectors create a beautiful pattern which is almost mesmerizing.
  3. Cactus.
  4. The fact that we’re on holidays when we’re here.
  5. The colours; rich golds, and rusts, and burgundies. The blue skies, the red sunsets.
  6. Attractions like the Desert Botanical Gardens, Butterfly Wonderland, and the zoo.
  7. The Grand Canyon, Sedona, Tortilla Flats. Next on my list: Antelope Canyon.
  8. That hubby can golf whenever he wants.
  9. Shopping.
  10. Eating out. We’ve eaten at so many fabulous places! Sassi, White Chocolate Grill, Blue Adobe, The Cove Trattoria, Davanti Enoteca, Lons, oh my, it’s almost embarrassing!
  11. Meeting wonderful blogging friends in real life. Oh, that’s eleven, oops!

So there you have it! I could list many more, but this will do for today.

But in case I sound ungrateful, when I get home, I’ll make a list of what I love about home. Because I do love my home.

Have a wonderful Sunday!

    Warm temps is enough to top the list always! Great list and so cool that you have gotten together with your blogger friends so many times ~ I would love that. Happy Sunday to you.

    I am so jealous of #10, I have been here 9 years and haven’t been to any of these. I am going to have to rent me a guy so I can go to dinner or go on Match.com. Love the heart cactus.

    I loved it also the one time I was there and then we went on to San Diego where I left my heart. It is amazing. All of it .

    Enjoy your time.. Your list is wonderful, images are beautiful.

    So glad you are enjoying your time here! I love it too for all the reasons you mentioned and more and had such a great time getting out together and capturing it. Having lived here almost all of my life, I still haven’t been to Antelope Canyon and it is definitely on my bucket list. Maybe some time when you’re here we can get a group together and go up there! Can’t remember when you said you were going back home but if warm temps are what you like, we are getting into the 80s this week! Hope the rest of your winter is short when you get home but you’ll have memories of AZ to keep you warm until spring!
