there’s something about arizona

When I moved here over a month ago, I was certain that I was going to hate this state.

As it turns out, Arizona has a certain charm to it that I didn’t actually believe was possible.

Ryan and I went through a pretty significant personal trauma the past week,

and as we’re working through the fallout of that, we’re enjoying long walks together

and just taking in these moments as a couple.

I’ve only been married for just over two months, but I’ve learned a few of the most valuable lessons in life.

1. We can’t predict the future, but we can control  how we deal with what happens.

2. We are partners through all of this, regardless of how we might feel any given day.

3. This man is a Godsend, dealing with my emotions, calming me and loving me unconditionally.

Life isn’t easy, and it certainly isn’t always fair,

but we are so blessed to have each other through all of the uncertainties in life.

And, we’re getting ready to head off on our cruise in less than two weeks.

A little rest and relaxation is just what the doctor ordered,

and we can’t wait to feel our spirits lift again 🙂
