desert winter

by beeprint

it’s been a rough weekend for arizona. i am having a hard time finding the right words for it all. this state is really hard to call home sometimes. the scary is right up there on the surface. if you are looking for some insightful words about it all, look here and here,

the photos above are from our week down south. my folks came to town on christmas day and we drove down to tucson to spend some lovely time with my mama’s sister and my dad’s aunt and uncle. the desert was beautiful and we even got to experience snow falling on the cacti. there is something about the stark openness of the desert that is absolutely breathtaking. it’s a raw beauty that i appreciate more and more the longer that i live out west.
