You don’t even have to turn the page on your calendar to know it is February in Scottsdale. You can feel the energy in the crowds and the traffic. We just finished hosting the Barrett Jackson car show and auction, which was a tremendous success, and we roll right into the time-honored tradition of the longest horse-drawn parade in the United States, the Parada del Sol. Next is the Greatest Game On Grass, The Phoenix Open. This year golfers will compete for a $20,000,000 purse, so we can expect all the top players to be in town. Following the final putt on Sunday, February 12, we host the Super Bowl in Glendale, AZ, which features the Kansas City Chiefs and the Philadelphia Eagles. To top it off, ESPN is broadcasting from downtown Scottsdale for almost a week bringing in even more excitement. 

Wait, I almost forgot my favorite sport, baseball starts at the end of February when pitchers and catchers report for Spring Training. 

Remember to be careful and patient the next couple of weeks as we have drivers from all over that may not know the lay of our land. Take time to enjoy everything we have to offer. We are so fortunate to live in a place like this. 

The most interesting and exciting thing that happened last month was my backpacking trip on the Routeburn Track on the South Island of New Zealand. It was a breathtaking experience and we hope to go visit there again.

This month my husband and I will be celebrating our 25th wedding anniversary together. It’s hard to believe we started dating in 1986, but I wouldn’t want to have it any other way. ❤️
