Happy Sunday Friends!
And hello from Tucson! I drove down late Friday for a funeral and stayed the weekend with friends. Although it was unfortunate to be visiting on these terms, it’s been really good catching up with everyone and visiting my old stomping ground. It’s my first time back since moving to Phoenix two years ago and it feels so good. I’ve felt like a prisoner to injury these last months, struggling to keep up with day to day life and more recently, battling to get myself and my life on track. All I can say is, I needed my friends and I’m happy I took the time this weekend. We need people in our lives more than we think. I’ll catch you up on the rest on my weekend later this week. Until then, have a great day and I’ll see you back tomorrow for a delicious recipe!
