Earlier this month we spent a weekend with friends at their Prescott Valley home, just a couple hours north of the Valley. We hiked in the chilly, pine-scented air, ate our fill at Bill's Pizza, and sat by a fire in the evening. Our babies even synched a couple of their naps and we were able to all relax with our coffee on the back porch and just talk. I now appreciate how glorious it is to have two free hands to wrap around a mug of coffee. I came home from the weekend feeling refreshed and reminded of how much more important it is to spend a weekend with friends and in the outdoors than to get stuff done around the house and run errands.
I took this picture on the back porch looking out towards the mountains during that weekend. I like the composition but didn't get the exposure right.
