Travel: Arizona + Utah Road Trip // Summer 2019 by Ian Michelman

I’m pinching myself as write this blog post because I can’t believe I actually stepped out of my comfort zone for a minute and did something completely spontaneous and unplanned! This past week, I flew to the beautiful city of Phoenix, Arizona triggered by a random desire, and drove over 1,000 miles up and down the state, all by myself! I visited Mather Point and Yavapai Point at the Grand Canyon South Rim, watched the sun set over Horseshoe Bend in Page, Arizona, and off roaded over 15 miles of dirt path in a Cadillac sedan so that I could experience the epicness that is Monument Valley!

There were a ton of other things on my list that I didn’t have time to do, but Arizona hasn’t seen the last of me! Here are just a few shots from my trip:

Lifestyle: J. R. Alford Greenway Picnic // Tallahassee, Florida 2016 by Ian Michelman

For Christmas this year, my sister got Carina and I a super thoughtful picnic "kit" complete with a basket, blanket, two mason jars, and a Publix gift card to shove food in our face (the best part). We decided to take advantage of the long weekend by driving out to the Greenway, which is definitely my favorite place to explore in Tallahassee! We set up under some trees, ate some delicious Pub subs, and then struggled for about an hour to take pics. Taking pictures of Carina is SO easy, but add my strange face into the mix while using a couple of shoes to prop up the camera, and things get a bit more challenging.

If you haven't made your way out to the Greenway, definitely dedicate a day to it! There's a few different trails you can walk and the scenery is so peaceful. I hope everyone has an enjoyable weekend!
