Have I ever told y’all how much I love living in Arizona?! I mean I really LOVE it here! We have lived here for almost a full year – and to tell y’all the truth, it has taken some getting used to, but I couldn’t imagine living anywhere else!
Last summer was brutally hot (this is Arizona – and we do live in the middle of a desert after all – I hear it’s brutally hot EVERY summer ha!) – but there is very little humidity here. Thank the Lord! We learned pretty early to plan our day a little more wisely – to do what we needed to do in the morning or after dinner …. and to avoid the mid-day! LOL. Being a family full of redheads – that sun is a killer on the skin!
Some of my favorite things about Arizona are the mountains (they’re all around us – they call Phoenix “the valley” for a reason!), the almost perfect weather year round and the sunsets are unbelievable! It’s almost as if God paints the sky a new portrait for our viewing pleasure every night! Those awesome sunsets were the inspiration for this easy drink …. by the way, you don’t have to be an Arizonian … or a “Zonie” (that’s what my SoCal husband calls Arizonians?!) to enjoy this drink! 🙂
