You see, it's a great place to be. We can still have snow but not the Idaho kind of nasty icy snow that sticks around for 6 months at a time. I honestly don't know if Sam could truly be happy somewhere where it didn't snow at least some each winter. I've heard the wind blows here all the time, but I imagine it will be quite different than the bitter cold Rexburg wind that can make you feel cold when it's 70 degrees outside.
Plus Sam promised a long time ago - when he first applied to NAU - that he would take me here if we moved to Arizona:
100 things to do before I die. I'm so excited to be moving closer to this beautiful place on earth.
And I want to go here:
And I should definitely go here too:
We'll be in Arizona for at least 2 years while Sam works on his degree either in Product Design or Alternative Energy. He's still not certain on exactly what program to go into - but they have both. The main this is that we finally know where we're moving in August. And I'm way excited.
I am not looking forward to meeting lots of scorpions - but I do want to see some at night - I understand they glow in the dark. So long as they're not in my house at night...actually, so long as they're not in my house period...but at least I know how to react to them. My cousin Katie blogged all about it. Thanks Katie!
