A Southwest Thanksgiving!

Arizona Missions 2018

Thanksgiving means family togetherness when possible.
Our last visit to the large group of Bob's family residing in Arizona was far
 too long ago in 2018. . . . . just prior to COVID!  We flew there for a
 special Thanksgiving get together and haven't been able to return since. 
This year we're heading southwest again, to spend time with
 those we love . . . . but of course we will also miss being here for the
 holiday with our own immediate family and friends.

Stay safe if you're traveling for the holidays.
Tomorrow, very early morning, we fly to Dallas, connect to 
Tucson . . . . then drive south to Sierra Vista, almost to the
 Mexican border!  

Warm weather, lovely desert scenery, cacti, cowboys, beautiful
mission churches, Mexican food, and most special of all, 
seeing loved ones after so long.

Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family.


  1. how fabulous - such varied scenery in your part of the World as you have such a huge country - would love to see the desert, cacti, dry and warm landscape - happy Thanksgiving.

  2. Have safe flights, dear Mary, and I am sure there will be tears of joy when you see your loved ones again!

  3. Happy Thanksgiving Mary, and what beautiful pictures from Arizona. I love the architecture from the Spanish mission era. Years ago we went to a conference at San Antonio and I thoroughly enjoyed the cultural experience. Enjoy your trip. xx

  4. Safe travels to you both. Have a lovely Thanksgiving! I received your birthday note yesterday. Thank you for remembering! xo

  5. Dearest Mary,
    Hope you manage to travel well, going and coming home.
    Enjoy special time with family and Happy Thanksgiving to all.

  6. Enjoy your trip Mary & Bob and have a wonderful and very happy Thanksgiving.

  7. Happy Thanksgiving, Mary and Bob! Enjoy your time in the sun with family!

  8. Enjoy your southwest Thanksgiving. We have family south of Tucson as well (Tubac, south of Green Valley) and have spent many February weeks there and a special Thanksgiving, too. The Sonora Desert is beautiful. May your trip be filled with good memories, good food and lovely weather!

  9. Have a wonderful trip. I had forgotten that we had a Sierra Vista connection. Happy Thanksgiving!

  10. Dear Mary and dear Bob,
    Yes, all of that which you will experience is my kind of celebration. Have fun, stay healthy and come back refreshed and happy.

  11. Enjoy the adventure!
    Happy Thanksgiving to you and your Bob!
    Sending love!

  12. Have a lovely and safe trip, Mary and happy Thanksgiving!
