Tucson!

Well, we made it! JB and I are now living in Tucson. So far we really like it!



Sad thing is, as I was "pretending" to hug the cactus, but I ended up really getting stuck by one of the needles. I would.

The photo is from the Tucson Botanical Garden . My dear/sweet mom drove down with us to help move, and before she flew back to SLC we went to the garden. It was cool to go there and learn about the vegetation in this area. I never knew there were so many different kinds of cacti. My favorite was the "Old Man."



After that, we spent a little bit of time shopping at 4th Avenue in downtown Tucson. My favorite shop was Pop Cycle-- Everything in the store was either remade from other products or vintage. For example, she took old Arizona license plates and cut them into strips, making them into pieced together plates that spelled things. Very cleaver! I plan on going back and buying one as soon as I save up enough "allowance." (Sometimes I feel like I'm still a little kid.)

Hope its not a bad place to spend a few years. I liked Arizona in a lot of ways. The interesting cacti are one high point. Lizards, toads are another. I am glad to hear you made it and are enjoying yourselves so far.

Welcome to Tucson, Loni! Silhouette owner and fellow Tucsonan here. I think it's cool that a designer could be around the corner from me. I love your designs, keep up the good work! I hope you can stand the heat, it does get better...around Halloween :).
