2012 Birthday Trip

My husband and I recently returned from our favorite “local” get-away…La Posada in Winslow, Arizona, which is about a 3 hour drive from here.

This time, Steve got a “free” room when he donated $150 to KNAU Radio in Flagstaff.  His money was matched by Allan Affeldt, the owner of La Posada, and a room coupon was ours.   My birthday landed on a Saturday this year, so I played the “birthday card” and told them to pick the room.  We were given one of the new deluxe rooms…WoW!

Mr. E. was looking quite dapper that evening, no?

We settled in, took a little nap, enjoyed a glass of wine in the room while I opened my gifts, and headed off to dinner in the Turquoise Room…our favorite restaurant in the entire world!

The following morning, after another exceptional meal, we went into the large common room, where Mr. E. played piano and I played my flute.  I’m not professing that it was much of a concert, but we had a blast and didn’t seem to bother any of the other clientele too much.

 I have been summoned back later this month to take more of my art work to their gift shop, and I feel like I’ve just won the jackpot.

Everything about La Posada brings me joy!
