Let’s be honest, everybody loves Friday. It’s the end of the work week, which in translation means that all of your fellow colleagues, perhaps even some of your clients, just don’t really care anymore. Emails start rolling in a little bit slower, calls become less and less, and those mind numbing meetings begin to wrap up thirty minutes early in preparation for happy hour.
Yes, Friday truly is a wonderful day. However, this one happens to be extra special. My mom just flew down from Iowa for a long weekend visit. Eh, and probably to flee from the polar vortex as well.
Over the next four days, the two of us will be enjoying some much needed girl time, kicking everything off with a hike and then pampering ourselves afterwards with a massage and pedicure up at the beautiful Sanctuary Camelback Mountain Resort and Spa. We’ll also be wining and dining our way through Old Town Scottsdale and taking in some shopping at a few of my favorite local boutiques, but that should come as no surprise to you all. Pictures of our adventures will be making their way to The Stiles Files very soon!
In other news, Andrew and I move in less than a week. Until then, enjoy some of the images I took over the past few days. Happy Friday!
