Sedona is one of my favorite cities to visit during this time of year. It’s always so beautiful there and the winter weather just makes it even better.

Blogger Staycation | Featuring The Graduate Hotel

Recently I was invited to attend an event at The Graduate Hotel in Tempe, Arizona; the college town of Arizona State University. This boutique hotel captures the charm and vibrancy of this young and fun college town and is located right across the street of ASU and within perfect walking distance of all the action located in downtown Tempe.

Who doesn’t love a good staycation?? I know I do, and Hotel Valley Ho knows how to do it right! Hotel Valley Ho is mid-century modern and contemporary hotel located in Downtown Scottsdale, Arizona. It is such an interesting hotel because of its unique architectural design and historical roots. John B. Mills, Robert Foehl and his wife Evelyn, opened the hotel way back in 1956 and built the hotel with the belief that “the important thing is to make your guest feel wanted” and from experience I can tell you that they still take that belief seriously today!

This past weekend we made a little trip out to Tucson for some of the world's best Mexican food. We let the JW Marriott Starr Pass spoil us a little, and we stuffed ourself every hour on the hour with delicious food!

Did you know thatTucson is home to the most authentic Mexican food north of the border?? Most of these restaurants are found found within a 23-mile area that includes the City of South Tucson, downtown and lower midtown. At these restaurants (many are actually family-owned and decades old) the settings are casual and ingredients are fresh. And most have been around a VERY long time.

On Easter weekend my little family and I packed up and headed down the road for a "staycation" at Mountain Shadows Resort in Paradise Valley, AZ. Since I'm not from here, I had NO idea that this place has MAJOR history. It's ICONIC, and not just to Arizona. It's known all over the U.S.
