Then Reno. A nice mix between the two; it came with the blue skies of Mesa mixed with a more temperate climate and SOME snow from Idaho.
We have no idea where we are living.
Microsoft is paying for a month free in an apartment, which is nice but the housing here is horribly expensive (I'm obviously comparing to Arizona, Idaho, and Reno).
Plus neither of us like any of the houses our realtor is showing us. Picky picky.
We've even contemplated buying land and building ourselves. Hmmm.
Dallin is liking his new job which is wonderful. So proud of my Senior Financial Analyst. We're super excited for this new adventure but still really sad to leave Reno. I didn't expect to love it as much as I did. I'm sure I can give that to the ward we moved into, the awesome friends we made, Dallin's amazing parents. We're very sad to leave that behind, but nothing a round trip ticket can't fix.
Every place I've ever lived, I've loved. I do have to say, I absolutely love the desert landscape! I found it in Idaho and in Reno...but it's nowhere to be found in Washington! NOWHERE! It's beautiful, don't get me wrong, but I think Dallin said it best when he described all the tress, everywhere, as "claustrophobic".
This desert rat misses cactus and rattlesnakes.
