Desert Bloom

I would be lying if I said that spring in Arizona isn't beautiful. Everything pops back to life, and the desert blooms always leave me in a state of awe. My folks have lots of great trees, bushes, cactuses, and vines growing on their property, but this purple blooming bush is surely my favorite. I'm a bit sad that I can't tell you what it is, but it sure is breathtaking with the sun shining on it and the flowers in full bloom.We took these photos pre-Kentucky adventure, so to look at these photos and the ones we took most recently, they sure look worlds a part. The change of scenery, however, was much welcomed and savored as long as possible, but more on that later.

Today I'm playing catch up and running around town for a few errands. Courtney and I also have plans for a smoothie date later, and I've got a shopping trip to TJ Maxx on my mind. I feel like I should also note that I've been living vicariously through Amber and her Spain travels. I spent two days in Barcelona a few years back and still can't get that gorgeous, vibrant city out of my mind. Spain holds a very special place in my heart, and I hope to make my way back there sometime in the future (with my soon-to-be husband in tow, of course).

What are your plans for today? What do you love most about spring? I seriously can't believe the season is almost over!
