Moving to New York City

I'm so excited to announce some BIG news! My husband and I are packing up our bags and moving to New York City exactly a week from today. We're loading up a rented minivan and driving cross-country with a two-day stop in Cleveland to visit family. If all goes well, we'll be New Yorkers by the first weekend in October.

While I am thrilled about the new adventure (it's been a long time coming, trust me!), I am going to seriously miss Arizona and the wide open spaces of the Sonoran Desert. Specifically:
  • The fact that I can see Camelback Mountain from my parents' kitchen, even though they live in south Chandler and Camelback Mountain is on the Scottsdale/Phoenix border. (Clear skies, people!)
  • Sunsets the color of cotton candy.
  • Purple watercolor mountains.
  • And I can't even talk about the familiar loving faces of family and friends without flooding my Macbook with tears, so I won't.
So, ladies (and gents?). That means the "local" section of this blog will start transitioning from Arizona to New York coverage. I hope you all enjoy the fresh start!
The lovely Sonoran Desert.
