Northern Escape

Jeans: JBrand; Shirt: Madewell and Target; Boots: Minnetonka; Purse: Target; Scarf: Target; Hat: Ninewest (old) similar here; Sunglasses: Madewell
One of my favorite past times is to hop in the car and embark on a road trip.  I recently escaped north with my family for a little r&r at a cabin deep in the woods of Flagstaff, Arizona.  Living in a concrete jungle, where every building takes on the same shade of beige and the heat bakes all day long, can grow tiring, especially in these summer months.  So traveling where the landscape paints many shades of green, where tall pines replace tall buildings, and the air is instantly a cool 75 degrees, is a very refreshing treat.
What I love about Flagg is that I can go for a walk in the woods and stumble across a meadow filled with flowers.  I can gaze into an infinite night sky and see an infinite amount of stars; there's no need for them to compete with those city lights.
Rather than hearing the humming of traffic, I hear the humming of the wind through the trees.  Rather than shouting hello into my cell phone, I shout hello to the mountains and the mountains answers back with a repeated echo...
We had the best time together, riding zip lines on the Historic Route 66, running through the rain at the Grand Canyon, feeding popcorn to the squirrels, and making s'mores and tellings scary stories around the camp fire.  It was a great northern escape.
