Guys!!! It’s my first blog post ever!! I’m so excited!!
I’ve been working on building the perfect website for months now. I am so excited that it’s finally done and I’m SO insanely happy about the outcome. I can’t wait to start this journey with you all! Starting a blog is fun because not only do you get to share what you enjoy most with people, but you get to watch yourself grow in the process, as well. It’s pretty exciting! I love learning and can’t wait to share and grow with you all!
I’ve dedicated my first blog post to one of my favorite experiences: The Grand Canyon. This summer, I took a cross country trip with one of my best friends. We started in Los Angeles and ended in our hometown in Virginia. We had about 5 main stops planned on our itinerary and wanted to make a quick stop at the Grand Canyon just to see what it was all about. We drove from Phoenix, Arizona, and pulled into a hotel pretty late at night. We wanted to see the sun rise over the Grand Canyon, so we looked up what time the sun would rise and then set our alarms for super early. We woke up the next morning, got ready, grabbed our things, and headed out the door. We made it to the hotel lobby and both looked at each other like we were going to cry. The sun was already up! It was completely bright outside! We were so bummed and completely confused. It wasn’t until after our trip, I was doing some research and found out that most of Arizona doesn’t have daylight savings time, so the sun came up an hour earlier than we thought it would…the world is definitely a magical place haha!
We took our stop and ended up staying for HOURS. We didn’t hike or anything, just stood by the edge and looked out. It was seriously breathtaking and I hope to make it back one day to explore even more. What are your favorite things to do at the Grand Canyon??
