A preface to the next chapter of our lives
Mr. TWS and I have been pretty quiet on the blog recently, but our personal lives have been bustling with activity and new adventures. For the past few months, we’ve been immersed in preparing for and beginning a new chapter in our lives by relocating to Scottsdale, Arizona from the San Francisco Bay Area.
I hope to get a chance to tell you more about some of our experiences along the way, both serendipitous and planned. Warm and wonderful visits with friends and families complemented exciting excursions into new territories.
Change can be a wonderful thing
And now, we call Scottsdale home. Although we’re not yet in our new house, while renting a condo at McCormick Ranch we’ve been enjoying the desert climate, fantastic restaurants, extensive shopping, amazing views, numerous events, and close proximity to family members. We’ve been impressed by the friendly people, locals and the seasonal “snowbirds”, that we’ve happened to meet. We’ve been surprised by fireworks at the nearby country club as we sat on our patio enjoying the night breezes. And every day, we’ve looked forward to what the future holds for us in our new hometown. So stay tuned. We’ve got more tell about our transitional journey as well as journeys yet to come. In the meantime, here are a few snapshots from our Instagram gallery to set the scene of relocating to Scottsdale.

Butterflies are free
See gorgeous butterflies and flora at Butterfly Wonderland @butterflywonderlandaz in Scottsdale, Arizona. Over 3,000 butterflies from around the world are here — the largest rainforest conservatory in the U. S. It’s really magical to walk around the conservatory as amazing butterflies flutter around and sometimes land right on you. @scottsdaleariz #arizona
All the best in your new home.
Scottsdale is a lovely area – we really enjoyed the historic downtown. Good luck with the move in and happy holidays!
p.s. I’ve got a secret too. Stay tuned! 🙂
You and Mr. TWS sure know how to choose nice places to live. It seems like you’re settling in even before moving to your home. Best wishes to you both for a merry Christmas and a healthy and happy New Year.
