Road Trip: Back in Az.

 We made it home from our trip last weekend. I have been trying to get back in the swing of things, catching up on work, emails, bills etc... 
I wanted to say thank you so much to everyone who left a comment while we were on our trip. It was so nice to keep you all close while I was away from home. I won't be responding to those comments personally  this time. I just didn't have the time then (or now) but I do want you to know how wonderful it was to receive them all.


Frank Sinatra sings a song where the lyrics go something like..."It's so nice to go traveling, but it's oh so much nicer to go home" I feel exactly the same. The trip was wonderful and I am so grateful we were able to do it. But, coming home to my house was a wonderful thing!!!

The car problems we had a long the way (God watched out for us and made sure we were always close to a repair shop) took us a little off schedule, so we didn't have a lot of time for sight seeing once we left Tennessee.  I already showed you picks from Oklahoma, Texas and New Mexico, but I thought I would end the "trip" with a few picks of Arizona coming across toward Flagstaff.

 I try to see the beauty in my state, but having grown up here I'm sure I don't appreciate as much as I should. I find it hard to marvel at the scenery when I compare it to the gorgeous places I've been. (I'm just partial to lots of green. Trees and water make my heart swell.) Don't get me wrong...There are some wonderful and unique places here in Az. On a clear day you can see forever. (Unfortunately this day was not as clear as I would have liked.)  :)
I was so happy to get this shot!! It's the perfect representation of the West!

And this is perfect representation of how we were all feeling by the end of the trip!
It's so wonderful to be home!

I'll have a fabulous store to share with you next time!
Have a wonderful weekend my friends

Welcome back girlfriend! Thank you so much for sharing your trip, I almost felt like I was there, especially with the videos. I didn't have much time to comment during your trip, as I've been very busy with my mom, but I'm starting to get a little time again.

Let me know, once you acclimate, when a good time to get together is. I wanna' do some changes to my blog.....and because you started it, you gotta' be the one to help...LOL

Either come over here, or I'll come to you, just let me know when you're available.

Hugs,
Meri

Karen, I love your scenery in your state as much as all of the other pictures that you shared of your trip. I didn't leave you a lot of comments because I wasn't on a computer that I could. The fall of the year is when I love to travel. Glad you are home. Your Missouri Friend.

What a fantastic trip Karen, I feel as if I've been along for the ride.
Although, there truly is 'no place like home'
Enjoy.

It's so good to know you made it home safe, Karen. Thank you for sharing such wonderful photos of your trip---they were gorgeous pictures. I felt like I was on the trip with you! I live in Maine where the foliage here can be quite spectacular, but for some reason, this Fall it was kind of drab. Can't wait to see what else you have to share with us.
