We’re currently in Tucson, AZ this week. Being here reminded me why we fell in love with Arizona to begin with. Spending a few days here has really embodied what a new year is “supposed to look” like on paper: a new start, a clean slate, a jolt of energy and motivation. Although every new year doesn’t actually feel like that, and we most definitely shouldn’t hold ourselves to those standards every first week of January…hey I’m only now starting to feel that spark two weeks in and some years I don’t feel that initial “new beginning” feeling.
It felt good to feel inspired again. The holidays kicked us in the butt. With both Oliver and myself getting sick before Christmas, holiday work deadlines and figuring out house details, I didn’t have too much pep in my step. Stepping foot on the build site, seeing things slowly start to take shape, and having a few still moments to really recenter ourselves was what we needed and again, that’s what always makes me fall in love with Arizona time after time.
The landscape, the quiet, the fresh air. Everything in life, truly is a cycle isn’t it? I remember feeling like this when we first made the move to the southwest from NY. We traveled a ton, had a baby, and now find ourselves feeling drawn to that change and stillness all over again. Although we’ve been here for eight years now, it feels like we’re truly putting down roots and that’s something that makes my heart pitter patter a bit.🧡 I have so much to share and house updates from this little trip, so stay tuned.
