Love, Juliebug: February 2012
Once again I am writing this somewhere in the past...

It is not lightly that I bid this state farewell.
Arizona has been my home since I was thirteen give or take a couple of years while we lived in Cali.
It's been a good home despite the horrid summers that seem to last forever.
Winter has always been my favorite season here.
An Arizona winter is like heaven. For example? It was 78 two days ago.
Yeah, heaven in my book.
Then, there are the sunsets.


The cacti (plural for cactus fyi) and the Superstition mountains.


Contrary to popular belief, cowboys do not ride down the middle of Main Street on horses. 
Arizona is quite civilized most of the time unless you go searching for that country twang.

But, in spite of all the beauty here the thing I will miss the most about Arizona are the people.










(If you were left out of my photo memory lane please don't be offended!)

When we moved here in 1989 I hated it. HATED it. I wanted to go back home. Somehow over the years this state became home. How does that happen? I am thankful for the experiences God has given us here in Arizona. Thankful for the family, for the friends we have here. We will always be close in heart. And, as we turn to a new chapter in our lives in Wyoming I look forward to what God has in store for us there. 


Being that we will be up in the frozen winter land soon (think the end of this month people!) I decided it is time for winter clothes. Yeah, this Arizona native (well, practically anyway) has no real clue on what to do to stay warm. Most of my life has revolved around trying to stay cool. To say our world will be flipped upside down is an understatement I think.
I keep hearing layer, layer, layer. Great idea. My question? What does that look like? Should I buy long underwear and sweaters? I am trying for maximum warmth and affordability with a touch of style.
It is 13 degrees there right now. Thirteen degrees and it feels like -2. Is there a difference really? I suppose I will find out.
So, any suggestions from you non-desert dwellers on how to go about this new wardrobe for me and our daughter?
