Tucson = Home

This morning somehow a conversation led to Luke telling us, “I don’t know why, but whenever I think of Florida, I think of mean people.”  Then Isabel, “When I was little, whenever I thought of Italy I thought of cowgirls.”  Sylvia, “Whenever I hear the word Italy, I think of a green bean!”  Thinking about what we think of when we hear the name of a place we’ve never been to made me try and remember what I thought of Tucson, Arizona before we moved here.  I can’t quite recall what I thought, but I know that I didn’t have a clue about Tucson.  It was a scary, mostly exciting move.

It’s been one year and one month since we’ve started calling Tucson home.  Here are the things that I personally love and did not know about this city.

-It’s a college town! (I know, I am sure you already knew that, but I didn’t realize the the University of Arizona was here.)
-Thrift shops, antique shops and locally owned businesses galore! (Although I don’t frequent them enough.)
-It’s an artsy town! (I don’t know how to describe this one, it just is.)
-There is a big Jewish community here.  (why do I love this??  I just do!)
– People are on bicycles all over the place here.  (not me, I think I have truly forgotten how to ride one 😦
-Everyone has a dog!
-museums, parks, the zoo!
– Summers (bring on the upper Fahrenheits!…that makes no sense.)
-Mt. Lemmon (in case you want snow in the winter.)
-The people we’ve met.  (This goes for any city, there are always great people to know.)
