Some of my favorite people are in Arizona right now and I got to see them! Zach and Jane Keller and their tribe are down here doing some more training for New Tribes Mission Aviation. Saturday Mom and I drove down and met them at Tombstone before heading to their place. We had a great time with them. It was so much fun. And, of course, I had to do an impromptu photo shoot while I was there. Here are a few favorites.

Soaking up the Warmth

Two days after I got back from California I headed to Texas. Yes, the travel continues.

The highlights of my 5 days in Texas: Seeing Barbara Lee and spending time with her sister Betsy.
Hanging out with two of my aunts, Peggy and Laila.
Being motivated by some big name motivational speakers at the Mannatech conference.
Going to the JFK museum in Dallas.
The adventure of spending time in a big city.

I am back in Arizona soaking up the heat. It is official... I am heading north next Tuesday. I will be in Boise for 7-10 days and then I am moving to Alaska.

The day after I got back to AZ from California my cousin, Ryan and I went shooting. He is a great photographer with awesome gear and makes me quite envious. He took me to one of his favorite places to shoot, the Superstition Mountains. It was a beautiful evening and we stayed for a couple of hours. Thanks for taking me shooting, Ryan. Here are a few of those shots.

We made it back to the states about four hours late, missed our flight, and due to a snow storm in ATLANTA we got to enjoy the south for more than 24 hours. This was a blessing, however, because we were able to rent a car and drive to see my brother and family in Alabama. We looked into extending our stay in Atlanta the day before and they wanted $750 for us to lay over for a couple of days. And then God send a snow storm so we could save a bundle and still see the sweet faces of those we love.

Monday evening we finally arrived back in Arizona. The next morning I checked emails and my flight reservations I had made before we went to Brazil. And much to my surprise I discovered I had a flight that evening. So I did a little laundry and re-packed my bags and headed back to the airport. This time it was west to California. My dear friend, Anita just moved to CA to be with her fiance. And I got to do their engagement photos, help with some planning and brainstorming for the wedding, and enjoying friendship.

Here is a sneak peak of the photos. I had such a great time with these two. Thanks Anita and Ben!
