The STITCH: Spring Break in Phoenix

For Spring Break I decided to pack my bags and take a road trip down to Phoenix, AZ to show some love and support for our boys on the Active AM team at Phx AM. After a long 6 hour drive, I was greeted by 95 degree weather and beautiful skies. AZ showed me a good time and I’ll definitely be back.
