I chose to move to Santa Fe for its natural beauty, rich cultural history, vibrant art scene, and because I always thought it would be just the coolest thing to live here one day. As a kid, my family used to visit the Southwest a lot, and I've always loved the wide blue skies, the big puffy clouds, the fresh air, and the stunning landscape. And while I’ve been homesick for Oregon from time to time, I love the new chapter I’ve started here. Not only am I getting lots of writing in, but I also feel inspired, alive, and excited about my work. As a writer, and as an adventurer in this wonderful thing called life, I find that I could not ask for a better situation. I thought I would share this news with you guys, since you’ve all been along with me for so much of my writing journey.
Here are a few things I love about my new home so far:
|There's a shop here called "Kakawa Chocolate House" that's dedicated entirely to hot chocolate.|
So delicious! I know where I'm gonna be all winter :)
And while I may have moved – don’t any of you worry: Cinnamon Peters is not going anywhere! She’s staying right in Christmas River where she belongs. But what I will say is that there may be some sort of hot chocolate shop cozy mystery series in store for the future. And with that, I better get to some hot chocolate “research." ;)
