Ten Reasons Why I Love Arizona in December

My creation

10. It smells really good outside. I think it's the sweet acacia blossoms.

9. There is citrus hanging on the trees and my parents' backyard looks like a fruit orchard.

8. It stays light past 4:30 p.m.

7. People are complaining that it's cold when it's 61 degrees outside, which makes me feel like a hearty Midwesterner since I think it feels downright warm.

6. No winter coat. No hat. No scarf. No gloves. No boots.

5. Endless blue skies that give way to beautiful pink sunsets.

4. Christmas lights that look strangely out of place and completely appropriate all at the same time. I cannot however say the same thing about blow-up snow men or inflatable snow globes.

3. Stars you can actually see in the night sky.

2. I can show Michal and Kenna my childhood bedroom, even though it has been turned into an office completely without my permission.

1. Mexican food. Mexican food. Mexican food.

    Beautiful! Are the pictures of your childhood home?

  3. I totally get it....we had an ice storm today!

    Enjoy AZ and hope your have a very happy and healthy New Year!

  4. Gorgeous! I love Mexican food too. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. Enjoy that warm weather!

  5. What part of AZ?? My hubby and I grew up in the Gilbert and Mesa area. And yes the best Mexican Food!

    We go back about 4 times a year and always think about moving back but then we remember the day we moved in 1992 it was a record high of 122 degrees!! It is nice to enjoy it and just visit all our family.

    The pics on our blog were taken at the Scottsdale Art Center in October, a beautiful place to shoot pictures. :-)
