Tonto Natural Bridge

The hot heat is here and is around to stay for the next few months. I am not looking forward to it, although I admit I prefer it in lieu of shoveling snow and being cold.  To break the long summer and escape the heat, we occasionally take a day trip, going north to places like Payson, Prescott, Sedona, Flagstaff, Jerome etc.  They are charming towns.  I sometime wished I lived there, but then I remind myself of the conveniences I am accustomed to by living in a large city (such as many craft stores to choose from).
This past weekend we took a day trip to Payson, and visited the Tonto Natural Bridge.
Before we had kids, David and I went there and hiked up, under and across the bridge, carrying a big old 4x5 camera.  I don't know if he ever got any good pictures of it back then.  This time, he sort of had a project in mind for a submission to a magazine.  The photographs I am sharing here are not his, they are by the amateur me, and my two generations old Android phone camera. Enjoy!

Hi there!

I am a young newlywed who is beginning a business to help others find abundance and wellness through essential oils. I am interested in developing relationships with women in my area (Chandler) and throughout Phoenix, whether married, singled, in the season of motherhood, or just any season of life. I want to share the wealth of knowledge and quality of health that I have found in Young Living's Essential Oils. They are pure, therapeutic grade oils that are grown from the very farms that Young Living owns and cultivates. Integrity and authenticity is the one thing that really stands out about this company. They are devoted to helping and serving us as the world's leading company in essential oils. So, this is a more of an invitation to those who may want to join a "team" with me, with the vision of bringing natural, pure solutions to every day life for our families through Young Living's incredible essential oil singles and blends (and other products). Whether it be the flu, autism, sore muscles, emotional/hormonal support, first aid for cuts and scrapes, insomnia, etc...the goal would be to assist and help build wellness for each other and those around us in all matters of daily life through pure, therapeutic grade essential oils! I have been building a resource of knowledge, recipes, facts, and information on essential oils and their versatility. These are the tool and facts that I want to share and which would be the basis for forming a team of like-minded women who are interested in this same venture and building relationships. If you are interested in investing in this visionary/business/health endeavor and joining with me in these goals, I would love to get to know you and share via e-mail at: (or @
If not, that's okay. I just want to extend the invitation. Thank you for your time. Many blessings and grace! :) ~ Erica R.

Hi Vesna, I passed a Macedonian church on the way to the East End and thought of you :) I hope you enjoy your new art supplies ;), and I'm sure you'll have fun in the gelli class. Hope you'll post about it!
