I have a confession to make. I miss Arizona. I miss family and friends and warmth and I really miss our house. I miss going outside in January without a jacket, wearing flip flops on my feet. I miss having windows open and smelling the citrus blossoms. I miss not worrying about the next big snowstorm.

I only say this now because it is the beginning of March and the winter here seems so long to me. I love the change of seasons. I love how green it is here in the spring and summer and the beautiful jewel tones of fall. I even love the snow, for awhile.

However, when it is really cold and dreary, gray and cold, I miss Arizona. I do not feel this way from May to November. I think I would be a perfect snowbird. Yet another dream for when we magically win the lotto.

So so true! We miss AZ so much, but with summer coming (hopefully sooner rather than later) I'm excited to be somewhere nice and green for now. If you win that lotto, feel free to pay for us to be snowbirds too. (: I heard Brent gets to make a stop in Jo city soon, sad we won't be there so I could actually meet him. Hope his trip goes well though.

Sending prayers for Tyler.
Winter will be over before you know it. Think about the lake and beach, lilacs and roses, picnics and swingsets!
