Adventurers at heart, Christina and Robert packed a summer picnic and ventured to South Mountain in Phoenix, Arizona, (in their mocs, of course!) to spend a relaxing day enjoying the beautiful landscape surrounding them.
Check out our Q&A with them below to learn more about how they are celebrating #EverydayAdventure this summer!
Everyday Adventure: Summer Picnic with Robert & Christina of New Darlings
Favorite way to spend a summer afternoon.
Summers in Phoenix are hot. There is no way around that. We’ve definitely become “morning people”. We have found that it’s best to head out early, find a trail to hike, and welcome the summer sun. We’d rather be outside, then cooped up somewhere. Afterwards, we’ll try to find some shade and have an early lunch. We love getting out and being able to just talk and enjoy the blue skies that never get old here in Arizona.
What makes for a perfect summer picnic?
Picnics are a great way to spend a summer afternoon with the one you love. When we both have the day off, we love to load up our picnic basket with our favorite blanket, some sandwiches, fruit and a refreshing drink or two. Don’t forget to bring your instrument of choice and your favorite hat & pair of sunnies to keep the sun out of your eyes!
Favorite part of living in the Southwest.
The sunshine and low humidity are some pretty great perks of living in the Southwest! But aside from the weather, we really love how this area isn’t fully established yet. The local art and music scenes are still evolving and we love that we can be a part of it!
What other adventures are you planning this year?
We’re hoping that within the next few months, we can carve out some time to take a long trip to California and explore a bit. We have a lot of fun projects coming up this year. We have been blessed to work with so many amazing companies and talented people, and can’t wait to share everything we have cooked up!
