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.)

Leaving Cache Valley

One of the last projects that I have been working on here at USU before we move is a day-to-night shot of the valley, from the top of the business building.

Everytime I have opened it to work on it, I can't help thinking, "What are we doing leaving this place?! It is so beautiful!"
