This blog is going to document my future life on the other side of the country, far from the comforts of home in my native Georgia, and into the desert Southwest of Arizona.
I'm doing this primarily for two reasons. First, I have enjoyed blogging for many years now and there is a lot I want to share with my family and friends back home in the South (and my friends around the world) who are always a continuous source of love and support. There will be lots of photos and video as well as writing, because this is possibly the biggest challenge I've ever faced and I want a record of it all.
Second, I'm moving far away from the people I love most in the world - and that's a hard thing to do in the best of circumstances, which conveniently these are. Having this blog to share with everyone helps the ones I'll miss most feel more included and part of everything I'll be doing, even when they cannot be there to do it with me in person.
A lot is changing and changing very fast, but I'm resilient and adaptable and I can make a home anywhere as long as I have the love of my life with me - so off we go to have new adventures and discoveries, and here you are to bear witness and come along for the ride. It may not be the same as being there, but it'll have to do.
