I Miss You Arizona

This past weekend I went to Sierra Vista, Arizona and watched my good friend get married.

It’s the first wedding I’ve been able to attend since a door closed in my life.

As I flew into Tucson and made the hour or so drive down to Sierra Vista, I couldn’t help but be reminded of the three years I spent in Phoenix.

It was hot. It was windy. It was desert. But I loved it.

Being back in Arizona made me wonder, “Could I possibly call this home?”

It seems I’ve been to every weather extreme. I’ve lived in Fairbanks, Alaska. I’ve lived in a tropical environment (Philippines). I’ve lived in a dry climate (Las Vegas). And I’ve also lived in a rather humid place (Northern Alabama).

However, none could compare to the desert of southern Arizona.

I’d go back in a heartbeat.

  1. I know what you mean. I lived in different climates and when I got to Las Vegas I thought ‘who in their right mind would want to live here’… well I stayed for 5 years. I left and relocated back to the East (VA) and dislike it immensely. I figured being from NYC VA wouldn’t be soo bad, especially since all 4 seasons occur here. Vegas and Arizona on the other hand is hot, dry, but it is so calming! Intend to go back to Vegas or Arizona… both beautifuly places!
