It's been soooo hot here but I love it! We moved here in 2011 from Seattle and while I love the summers in Seattle I wouldn't trade AZ for it!
They year before we moved I had never been here. Brandon always said he wanted to move here someday and all I could picture was hell ha , hot, barren desert, not beautiful but just dry and terrible. Well if want like that at all. We had friends move and we came to visit them 10 times that year. I fell in love with cacti, with the way the mountains turn dark and purply at dusk, with the most amazing sunsets I have ever seen and with the amazing weather. Yes even in the summer. It's hot as balls but I can still go outside, it's monsoon season so the rain will come and storm at night and be beautiful in the am. It's the best of both worlds. I love it. Arizona definitely has my ♥️. Even in the summer I can sit in the pool in the shade and I think that's pretty perfect!
