Phoenix Zoo Captures Holiday Spirit

Have you ever seen zoolights? I have actually, at Chicago’s Lincoln Park Zoo, but they were not nearly as pretty as the ones currently up at the Phoenix Zoo.

It was by corporate invite that we said, why not? as, like almost everything shopping, eating and service-related, entertainment is also a short drive away.

First we stopped at our new favorite fast-food joint: In N Out Burger,ย then on to the zoo.

Back in the Saddle Agaaaain! PHOTOS #maplelakeontario #algonquinhighlands

Back online. Still here. Woo-hoo!

Been gone for the better part of a year, but I’m back. Spent only three days at Maple Lakeย in May 2015 and it was opening so–work, no play! Moved to the foothills of Phoenix. Happy. Hope to figure out a system of staying with our mutt at the cottage during the three months here in Arizona each summer when you “don’t go outside.”

Best to all in 2016!

Please enjoy and laugh at some snaps from the latter part of 2015.

Love the hashtag “#nofilter,” as it could be aย (partial)ย description of me. Hee.

Went to the Pacific Ocean for my birthday this year. Just a long weekend, but there will be more to come.

We now live in a stone castle. My bathroom is bigger than my bedroom in IL was. A lot bigger.

It’s a pain because way too much to clean!

(Thank goodness for one-year leases!)
