Stranded in the Desert has been started in effort to blog the struggles and triumphs of my new found life in the Sonoran Desert.
Less than a week after getting married, my husband and I whisked off to start a new life in Arizona, leaving the beautiful Monterey Bay behind. The transition has not been an easy one, perhaps because we made the treck during the heat of summer, the middle of June.
Since arriving in the Sonoran desert, I have struggled with weather acclimation, landlock, finding a job, getting back into school, missing family and friends, and not to mention the new challenges of married life. I wouldn’t have, however, been able to make it this far without the loving support of my husband, David, and the added companionship of our two pups, Jacob Tyler and Franklin Bob, who are both Arizona natives we’ve adopted shortly after moving here.
