Hi, I’m Vera, and I’m blogging about everything Arizona or whatever pops into my head. I moved here 4 years ago from Michigan and at the time, I was hating my life. I was miserable in Michigan, miserable in the cold, miserable because I was alone, and just generally……miserable. After moving to Peoria and then later to Mesa, I started to find my way. Maybe it was just the longer days free from the ridiculous cold, snow, sleet, and freezing rain. Maybe it was the dry air. I’m not sure what it was, but I think it was the sun. I started to meet people. I dropped a few pounds. I found a little upward mobility in my job. I went on a few dates. And got a dog. All these things worked together to help me find a bit of a purpose. So I decided to start journaling (or blogging) to keep track of it all. Keep checking in. You don’t know what you’ll find.
