ocean-front property

In Arizona!!!

After much debate, many discussions, some fact-finding missions, a few treks across the desert, heart-burn, and early stages of pneumonia, we finally came to a conclusion. Any of the jobs we were contemplating would be fine, but only one would put us near family; and that is something we've wanted for years.


So sometime this coming summer (most likely in July) we'll be moving somewhere in the greater-Phoenix area (because that's what you want to be doing in Phoenix in the summer - moving in the 115 degree heat, right?) We're excited for this new chapter. In the meantime we'll remind you, you've got 6 more months to come and visit us in San Diego, after that you might as well come on over to the desert. I hear its blooming as a rose.

Again...so excited for you! And I completely agree about family, so wonderful to have them close! And best of all...we are planning a trip to AZ in September. Perfect timing for us (we don't have to do any heavy lifting/moving in the 115 heat)...and yay, you'll be moved in and we can play!!

Congratulations!!! I mean, REALLY, CONGRATULATIONS!!!! You made it! I'm so glad things are working out for you! Are you looking at house prices and neighborhoods already? I admit, I'm obsessed with stuff like that as soon as we find out where we're moving next.

Pages, so glad to hear of your move to Arizona. It is a great blessing to have the freedom to live where you wish. It has taken many years of hard work from both of you. Karen grew up in Tucson and still has many relatives in Mesa, where we were married. All the best to you and a safe move. Steven, Karen, Cora, Seth, and Enoch

Congratulations! Warm weather year-round sounds really nice :) And what a blessing to have a job near family!

I just read a headline that there was an earthquake in San Diego. I immediately thought of you. Hope you are all doing well!

Thanks everyone for your great support! Steven - where are you guys these days? And Kim, I have not heard of an earthquake here, either I've missed the boat thanks to my nightly narcotic cough medicine or it was far, far from us.

Doctrine and Covenants 133:29 "And in the barren deserts there shall come forth pools of living water; and the parched ground shall no longer be a thirsty land". anyway, congrats!

Congratulations on graduating to real life! More friends who are evidence that this seemingly endless road truly does have an end.
