5 Must-stop Places Along the Mesa Foodie Trail highlighted local farms and restaurants where you can get the freshest crops and cuisine.   In the dusty desert of the Valley of the Sun, it’s striking to come across rich fields of thriving crops.

OH MY.   Brunch: A delicious meal typically consisting of breakfast-inspired entrees and your pick of morning cocktails, occurring in the late morning to accommodate the required sleep-in schedule of the weekend.   Brunch is the reason that many of us choose to pull ourselves out of bed on the weekends.

And hey, being a single digit for 9 years can get pretty dull. So you can imagine Mesa Arts Center is pretty excited to be celebrating the tenth year at One East Main Street!

Dan and I were decided to plan for a spring wedding due to the lovely AZ weather (and plenty of time to plan!!)! We have always had a very unique and urban style and wanted to incorporate that into our special day.
