WEEKEND IN PHOENIX

(via)

The last half of our last week in the States Peter and I spent in Phoenix, where Peter stood beside his mentor and friend (the husband of my mentor and friend who passed away last spring) in his marriage to a diamond of a woman. Their love story is genuinely one of the best I've heard and we were incredibly honoured to be a part of their weekend.

Phoenix was sunny with highs in the 80's and if it hadn't been for our children awaiting our return in Detroit, I may have been forced to board our plane kicking and screaming. We stayed at the gorgeous Arizona Biltmore where our free time was spent laying in the sun and sipping cocktails at their many poolsides. By night, we savoured the cool temperatures by unwinding on the terrace off our room where we drank champagne and indulged in clove cigars and chocolates.

Peter rented a fully charged Camaro for our trip, which he intended to make full use of. Saturday after the wedding we stopped for tacos at a hole-in-the-wall off I-17, then drove to Sedona to watch the sunset, cruising with the windows down, taking photos and blasting music the entire way.

The weekend was a great way to relax together before trekking back across the pond and we're so grateful the trip worked out this way.
