Why I’ve returned to my roots, and what I love about being here.
Home is about a sense of community and belonging. I’ve been fortunate to grow up in the Southwest, and live in the beautiful San Francisco Bay Area for more than 35 years. My roots are in Arizona, and it’s the ideal time in my life to return home.
I reminisce about Scottsdale when Camelback Road did not cross the canal at Scottsdale Road. When Goldwater’s Department store and Fashion Square did not exist. I fondly recall going to the Sugar Bowl Scottsdale Arizona as a kid for a Hot Tin Roof Sundae. Sugar Bowl is still there but I would not dare eat one of those today! I’ve always felt connected with what I know intimately, the people and place known as the Valley of the Sun.
