Last weekend mom and I escaped south to our favorite quick getaway spot – Scottsdale, AZ. We love the guaranteed warm desert weather, short direct flight, countless great restaurants, and staying at the retro chic Hotel Valley Ho. OH how we love Hotel Valley Ho so much - from the room service, to the friendly staff, to the super clean + bright colored rooms, it's hard not to be happy every minute you're staying here. The grounds are beautiful and there's fresh limes literally growing right outside your room. After a friend recommended this spot a few years back, mom and I have been here multiple times as we don't want to stay anywhere else - we love it that much, and I've introduced it to some girlfriends as well.
Perfectly timed to enjoy Mothers Day weekend together, mom and I lounged by the pool, took long daily strolls around the neighborhood, checked out a couple new restaurants (most notably - Kaleidescope Juice and The Montauk) and hit up a few old favorites (we always love Chop Shop, Cafe Zuzu and The Herb Box), went on a little hike, did some shopping, and read a foot-tall stack of magazines. We came back feeling relaxed, refreshed, and feeling all glowy from a little time together in the sun.
