Field of Yellow

This time last weekend Scott I were exploring Fort Tuthill County Park, located right outside of Flagstaff, Ariz. We drove up Thursday evening after I got out of work, and stayed until Monday afternoon (just in time to hit the traffic on the way home - doh!). My parents were up there for the weekend as well, so it was extra nice to spend some time with them and my pups. The weather was in all sense glorious, especially coming from the hot, humid weather we were having in Phoenix. The first night we were there I busted out a jacket, which was not entirely necessary, but definitely appropriate for this cool weather deprived Desert Rat.

Over the past few years my mom has made it a tradition that we stop in at New Frontiers, a natural market that carries the most delicious pastries, cheeses, breads, and basically every natural snack you can think of (I even buy my favorite facial toner there!). So Thursday evening we spent some time wandering around New Frontiers, where we ended up getting up some goodies for the long weekend. By the time we got back to our campsite all I wanted to do was snuggle my pups and watch Bravo!

Throughout the weekend we spent a good amount of time exploring the nearby woods, almost getting turned around in a giant field of flowers, and taking in the rain and much appreciated cooler weather. It felt so good to have a real fall weekend up north, as it won't really feel like fall in Phoenix until at least October. However, this hasn't stopped me from starting to plan our fall adventures and get excited about the season. The end of this month also marks 7 years since Scott and I first met, and next month will be our 7 year anniversary and last anniversary as a non-married couple! Eck! We've been making lots of strides with planning our January wedding and I can't wait to start sharing more details and my thoughts on the planning process here.

Outfit details:
Sweater: Last Chance
Necklace: Locally made/gifted from my mother
Jeans: Levi's
Shoes: Converse (from the 11th grade!)

Even though I just complained above about our hot, hot heat we've been having in Phoenix lately, today it is raining and dreary outside and I couldn't be more excited! I'm sipping on hot coffee and getting ready for my makeup shopping date I have with Sarah later.

What are you up to today? Would you like to read about our wedding details?
