I currently live in Chicago, but I grew up in the gorgeous 48th state of Arizona, and visit about once a month. AZ is quite a stranger to most people who haven’t been there — many people I talk to imagine cacti, tumbleweeds, and dirt. And while Arizona does have all of that, it has a lot more to offer, and it’s a lot prettier than people think. I’ve lived in quite a few cities in AZ — Tempe, Flagstaff, Gilbert, and Scottsdale. Each city in Arizona has something different for everyone, and I wanted to highlight the best things to do in Arizona, especially if you’re vacationing there. If you currently live in AZ, you might learn about something you didn’t know before!
I’ve broken everything out by general geographic area, but know that the Phoenix metro area is surrounded by multiple freeways, so nothing is too far away.
I’ll be updating this list frequently, so be sure to check back if you’re planning a trip! Also feel free to give me a shout if you’re visiting Arizona and have more questions; I’m more than happy to brag about this amazing state!
That’s how it goes, right? Well, SF has another fan on board. Idan and I just returned home from a trip to the Golden State, and it was simply wonderful. I fell in love with the weather (60 degrees is my jam), the food, and the houses. We ate more food than I’ve ever eaten before, and walked more miles than I would have ever thought possible (although I was warned about both of these things). I recapped the whole trip for you below, so you can see what made this trip a great one!
My darling friend from high school, Danielle, is getting hitched this December! We decided to throw her a Beach Bachelorette Party over the summer, when we could enjoy the sunshine (not that California is lacking it…), and all the fun accessories that come with the season.
We got the party started at the house, where we decorated for drinks and snacks, and gave all the ladies their presents!
I recently met a woooonderful lady named Liz! We met at WeWork when I was visiting a friend who sits there, and we got to chatting about her career as a health coach. I found her fascinating because she has a completely holistic view on life, and she’s also so sweet and friendly in nature! I also had read her Soul Chat before meeting her officially, and this piece of advice stuck with me the most:
“Don’t compare. It’s very hard not to do, and especially because you get inspired when you look at others. But there’s a difference between inspiration and comparing— it’s a fine line.”
I asked Liz to be a guest blogger for Love Always, Audrey because I trust her advice and I was excited to hear what advice she had to share with my readers. Plus, at the end of the post, you’ll be able to get a discount on her 6-week summer health coaching program! Click through to read Liz’s take on an important topic: your skin!
This past month, I took a 7-day Alaskan cruise with my family. It was such a fun and relaxing trip – something I desperately needed! We did the Inside Passage with Glacier Bay trip with Princess; this started in Vancouver and went to Ketchikan, Juneau, Skagway, and Glacier Bay, and ended in Whittier.
