The Big Five OheeOheeOhhhhh

Much goings on with Queenie and her Kingdom of late… 
Round about the middle of April, the eleventh to be precise,
Queenie hit one of those milestone birthday bench marks.
In celebration, Honey Man whisked Queenie away to the wee town of Jerome, Arizona for a getaway weekend.
A once mining boom town, gone ghost town perched on the side of a mountain in copper country.
It's now a quaint and quirky artsy haven.
Full of fun art galleries, gift shops, eateries, and wine shops.
We stayed at a delightful vacation apartment with the most amazing view!!
 
Which could be enjoyed for not one, but two sets of balconies.
One of which was perfect for dining alfresco!
Since our vacation get-away was located in the heart of this wee town we parked the car and did all our exploring on foot.  We happened across a darling old church – Holy Family
This old church is full of  rural Arizona, mining, gone by worship that in particular touched Queenie’s heart.
Honey Man and I lit a candle for the Queenie Mother and Father as they were traveling from beautiful Ohio to Arizona during this same time.
Throughout the town beautiful spring was shining forth…
Lilacs!! One of Queenie’s favorites, blooming especially for my special birthday.
If you are looking for a one of a kind get away in amazing Arizona give Jerome a try!!
Until next time…
Have a great day!
