Four Year Anniversary

Four years ago today, October 3, 2009, Bill and I arrived in Sierra Vista, Arizona. So much has changed in the four years, but not my desire to be back where it is green and lush and where my granddaughters live. I’m content in the moment, but not complacent. There have been good times here and we’ve made some good friends, but I’ve missed so much by not being there. Too much. And so the work continues in the quest to move back east. Arizona, you are a great place to visit, but I’ve visited long enough and it is time for me to go home!

What can I say? I love a wide open sky and watching the clouds!
