This weekend we spent a much needed relaxing weekend at the Los Abrigados Resort & Spa celebrating my mom's 59th birthday. As a surprise we booked a weekend getaway for my mom , so she could relax and have fun. As a kid, we frequently visited Sedona during the hot Arizona summers so this place holds a lot of special memories. As a family we began walking through the lovely shops located in downtown Sedona and took a look at all the amazing artwork from local artists.
After viewing all the amazing art pieces, we traveled to the gorgeous Chapel of the Holy Cross , there we viewed the fantastic Sedona redrocks and lit a candle inside the church as a reflection of our many blessings.
After all of our walking and a delicious lunch at The Oak Creek Brewery we settled at our resort and enjoyed the beautiful Sedona Oak Creek for an impromptu photo session. I happened to take our camera to snap images of our family and decided since we were all in a beautiful location what better time for a family photo right?
Let me introduce my loving, crazy and sometimes probably a little too loud family.
With the past few months being our busy season and add in a trip to the Dominican Republic, Miami, celebrating our sons 12th birthday, the holidays and battling a nasty cold, our family photos were placed on hold. We might not have planned this session and coordinated fancy outfits but I think we did pretty good, wouldn't you agree?
What a great trip and wonderful way to celebrate my mom! Without getting too emotional or sappy, I will just say this, my mom is the BEST mom. She raised us to always have confidence, faith & empathy towards others. My kids are the light of her life (My brother and I are convinced she likes them more than us). Mama, growing up with you as my role model has taught me so much and continues to teach me on a daily basis. I have learned that being a mom is the one and only job that matters and I intend on doing it as well as you . Love you mom, "To infinity and beyond".
