I lived in Pennsylvania until 5 years ago, when a job offer for my husband sent us to Arizona.
There are many things I love about Arizona, and many things I miss about Pennsylvania. I don’t miss the humidity. At all. However, I miss many things that go along with the humidity. Tall, leafy green trees. Streams and rivers. RAIN. I went to Dorney Park with a friend, and it rained while we were there. She ducked under it and tried to stay dry. I soaked it up.
One of the things I miss most about living in Arizona is my dog. When I moved out, she couldn’t adjust, and ended up staying with my parents. She’s 13 1/2 years old, pretty ancient for a dog her size. We shared a Rita’s gelati (another thing that AZ doesn’t have).
I’m getting ready to fly back to AZ today, and I’m happy to be going home, but I’m also going to miss PA. I’m not sure when I’ll be back. It’s hard to leave home. PA will always be home, no matter how much I love AZ.
