If Michal and I had stuck to our original itinerary we would be home now. However instead of going East, we continued West. On impulse we decided to surprise my dad in Phoenix on Thursday instead of going home.

Phoenix was just a short flight from Denver. My dad and stepmom had no clue whatsoever that we were on our way! Needless to say they were more than surprised when their doorbell rang yesterday afternoon. It was the surprise of a lifetime!!! Thankfully they agreed to take us in off the hot streets and provide us with food and a place to stay until Monday 🙂

Phoenix is ridiculously hot in July. It was 110 here yesterday. Dad, the fact that I’m here in July is a testament to how very much I love you! Now I’m off to savor every moment of this unexpected time together. Sometimes the best things in life happen spontaneously!
