Our Very First Anniversary [Part One]

Hey! Remember when it was our anniversary?! We do too! And here, my friends, brought to you weeks later, is how we celebrated that special weekend.

We left Friday afternoon, groceries in stow, directions in hand, and headed to little Bisbee, Arizona, it's not Paris, but it's a super-fun little [former] mining town, and we really had a great time AND [because we all love run-on sentences] thanks to Groupon, the trip totally fit into our hey-we're-about-to-buy-a-house budget.

We stayed at the Gardens at Mile High Ranch B+B, and we absolutely would recommend it to friends, family, and even strangers! It was quaint, relaxing, and extraordinarily pleasant.


Ready to go!


This is his impression of how I sit in the car. It's pretty accurate actually.

Our first night, we got in, grabbed some dinner and opened our complimentary bottle of wine. 

The next morning, we shared a totally delicious breakfast (Hubband makes the best breakfast burritos) and ran off to the San Pedro Riparian Area, for a hike nature walk.

We weren't really sure what to expect, but what we found was nothing short of awesomesauce. The reserve is right smack-dab in the middle of the desert, a surprise oasis of beautiful green.




 Does this tree look big to you?

 Because it's huge


 It looks like the Savanna! You know.. Since I've been to the Savanna and all.

 That goofy face... And this was his best one!



 Some Outtakes





Trees, trees, and more trees!

Back to the desert!
 
Back to the desert...


 ...Where it's hot
 Do you see anything in there?
Because there's definitely something there...


 

Yeap, that's a rattlesnake! It was TOTALLY rattling before we got the video too. Yikes!
 
That's it for part one, I won't turn this into that time when your Aunt Irma invited you over to see her travel slides, and let-me-just-show-you-a-picture-of-one-more-rock.

Have any fun trips lately? Or you know. In the past few weeks?

Haha! What a great time! We have always been horrible at taking trips (we are definitely homebodies!) but this looks nice and relaxing and low key!
