A couple of weeks ago, we packed up the family for a trip to AZ to visit my in-laws. They live in a beautiful little town outside Scottsdale called Fountain Hills.
Obviously, this is the fountain the town was named for. It is quite a site to see, actually. I first visited the desert over 10 years ago and I have to say, it did not speak to me back then. I just could not understand why anyone would want to live there. It seemed so barren and brown. But, after a few short visits, I began to see the beauty.
How amazing is that? This is the sunset view from my in-laws patio. Just breathtaking…
We also went on a hike on this trip, a long hike. I’ll be honest and say, that hiking is not always my first choice on the daily to do list, but if I lived here, I might change my mind. It was great once we got to the top and my girls were troopers. I was a bit skeptical about the 4 yr old making it the full 2 miles!
This is the view looking back from where we had hiked. We were all pretty proud of ourselves.
Okay, so there’s a reason for showing you so many of my vacation photos. There is so much inspiration around us. I didn’t see it when I first started traveling to AZ, but now it’s just fascinating to me. I’ve always wanted to design a home here, so this week I am going to spend some time with my Southwestern inspiration. Hope you enjoy it!
I’d love to hear what inspires you most. Drop me a note!
