Well, it’s been a strange time since I last checked in. Yes, I spent last week in Sedona, Arizona, as planned, but my dear friend Kristin passed away the Sunday before I left. So it’s been a strange mix of grief and jet lag and deep inner healing work. There were definitely sparkly moments in the past week, but everything feels exhausting at the same time. I guess that’s grief. Anyway, here’s what brought the sparkle:
This is my favorite picture of me from Sedona. We did a hike to the energy vortex on the Airport Loop trail and then had the option to hike around the area as we wished. Two of the other girls and I opted to go to the summit, where we got to soak in these gorgeous views!
The next day, we went to Boynton Canyon, where we encountered the Flute Guy, who climbs to the top of this rock and plays his flute twice a day. He also handed each of us a heart-shaped rock on his way up there! ❤️
On our last day, Saturday, we did the most difficult hike of our time in Sedona wherein we literally crawled and pulled ourselves up rocks to get to this point on Bell Rock. I’m now covered in bruises and still feeling muscles I didn’t know I had, but I did it—and I definitely didn’t think I’d be able to! I felt very accomplished! 😊
We also had time to explore the town of Sedona, where I bought quite a few crystals and got my aura picture taken!
Lastly, I never really adjusted to the time difference and kept waking up at 5 AM, so I’d just go outside and watch the sun come up every morning! Seeing the sun rise over the red rocks was a treat every day, but the last morning was especially gorgeous:
What put the sparkle in your week?
Hope you have a great weekend! xo
