A Girlfriend’s Guide to Tucson, Arizona

My name is Sara and my city is Tucson.

I have lived in my city Tucson for 25 years—yup, born and raised!

My city is best described by these five words: sprawling, kind, community, adobe, and hot!

The most famous thing about my city is its natural landscape.

The best way to explore my city is by bike—Tucson has hundreds of miles of bike lanes!

When my girlfriends come for a visit, I always take them to El Charro because they have amazing margaritas and some of the best Mexican food in town. In fact, they invented the chimichanga!

It’s only later you realize it’s one of the world’s most photographed places, an iconic image of the American Southwest  that is haunting and spellbinding. A place that draws you into its vast desert space to speak to your soul.Continue

Getting Sacred in Sedona, Arizona

It’s impossible to put your finger on.

You can feel it, even breathe it in, yet you can’t touch it or explain what it is. As you climb the rock formations you begin to feel light and uplifted, while all your worries slip away. Your breathing becomes deep, your skin has a slight tingle and a smile forms on your lips.

When you reach the top to look over the strikingly beautiful landscape it hits you. You can’t remember ever feeling so relaxed, at peace and joyful.Continue
