Or Why I started WIASIT.
I have wanted to live in Tucson since the late 90s when I made my first trip from DC to Tucson for a convention.
You could have knocked me over with a feather. A Jersey-born girl in the desert? An East coast lover through and through, I was smitten as my cab pulled into the Foothills and I haven’t looked back since.
It’s been a journey to get here, but this past August my hubby, two pups and I pulled into our garage and started life over in Tucson.
Before arriving for good, we’ve visited many times and each time I’ve found something new to love – from food, to history, to the pure beauty of the landscape. Never mind the hiking, the wildlife and the expansiveness of a city like Tucson.
This blog is my love letter to my new city.
In it you’ll find Events & News, Food & Drink reviews and opinions, Lifestyle and Community announcements, Information for Pets and their owners and of course conversations with people who make Tucson their home.
Although I’m calling it a love letter, don’t expect this to be a place where I pander to the status quo. I know full well how hard it can be to break into the established mindset of Tusconans. That’s not a bad thing, but I will cast an eye on how “old” and “new” Tucson can play well together.
Above all, I want this to be a place where locals and visitors can have a good time, get to know each other and learn something new about this jewel of the southwest.
