So we lasted about 4 winters in Wisconsin before my husband declared he would loose his mind if he didn’t get to a warmer climate. It was dreary February, my sister just moved to Scottsdale, AZ, so I decided to take a trip to see her. Check out the place. See what it’s like in the desert. The morning after I arrived, I went for a walk on this beautiful path, full of amazing plant life- brilliant oranges, reds and purples surrounding huge saguaros. It was breathtaking. Then I heard it- the bird. There is a bird that lives on the island in Mexico that I’d hear everyday. It’s a very unique sounding bird (although I can’t remember the name). I heard it and it stopped me dead in my tracks. Then I decided, we’re moving to Arizona. I based our decision on a bird.
