Revisiting Sedona

Terrence and I decided to revisit Sedona for our five-year wedding anniversary. It was nice to return to this beautiful and peaceful place–the site of our honeymoon. We went here for three days after our wedding, where we relaxed and rejuvenated at The Enchantment Resort, toured Sedona’s quaint little town, rode the trolley, stopped at the Chapel of the Holy Cross, and saw its magnificent Red Rocks from a helicopter.

This year, on our return, we had Miggz in tow for our day trip. My mom also came along. It was a short and sweet stop compared to the three days we had for our honeymoon. But aside from what seemed like an endless number of roundabouts they added to this whole town, nothing’s changed. Sedona is just one of those places that leaves you BREATHLESS.

We decided to stop by the Chapel first. You park at the foot of a hill and climb to the chapel site up a ramp.

Even at the parking lot, the views everywhere are already postcard-perfect…

Good thing I decided to bring flat footwear…the short hike to the chapel is a work-out! And try pushing a stroller up the hill and on the ramp!

This is Miggz and Daddy walking up the ramp…

It was hard to get a decent photo of–and with–Miggz. He just wanted to run around and explore.

These are a couple of good ones…

And outside…

After the chapel we headed to Tlaquepaque Arts & Crafts Village. Miggz decided to nap during the entire two-and-a-half hours we were here!

I had mixed feelings about this nap.

On one hand, Miggz sure missed out on–and would have gone bananas for–the little village’s number of fountains and archways (or “tunnels” as he would refer to them). JUST for these, a return trip with him is in order…

On the other hand–with Grandma with us to watch Miguel while he naps–Terrence and I had free rein to explore this photographer’s dream of a place, like honeymooners on a date.

So my husband did what he does best when not distracted by the bundle of joy and energy that is our child–appreciate the beauty of faith, hope, and love that is his wife.

Truly rare is a husband who breathes joy into your every day, loves your child with every bit of life within him, and treats you like a super model (and a super mom–despite your flaws) during his every waking moment.

Such is my husband, and for him I am truly blessed.
