I'd be lying if I said that I knew today was Arizona's birthday, however, thanks to Facebook and all of my knowledgable Arizonans it was brought to my attention ! 100 years is quite incredible and I am happy that I was able to take part in about 23 of those years. It's the state that holds pretty much all of my loved ones and I am so grateful that I get to visit as frequently as I can. It's a pretty hot state for being 100! (Please excuse my corny-ness).

let me make this clear, my dear... i love you

This year I had some grand plans of designing, printing, and mailing my own valentine cards to all my sweetest loved ones. Even as a single girl, I still like Valentines day because it actually makes me think of all my family and friends - the ones I truly love! However, as we all know, life gets busy and our visions and dreams seem to take back seat to the daily tasks and jobs at hand. Thank goodness for the internet so I can still send you a "handmade" card in time. Hope you have a great day filled with love from all!

Design and concept side note: got this idea of an eye chart while I was at the optometrist last weekend. I have seen other signs before too that say, "one rarely sees what is right in front of their eyes." People are so clever! Feel free to use or print out if you'd like :)

music to my heart & empty wallet

Over six months ago I decided to take a leap of faith and purchase a ticket to Coachella without knowing what bands would be performing. It's a bit of a pricey gamble, but I figured no matter what it will be one heck of an experience. The first couple months after buying the ticket I felt good about the purchase, but the past couple months while money has been a little tight I started to really second-guess my decision and was feeling that it was maybe a little irresponsible. Well, today was the day that the list became known to the public and I must say that I am a happy, happy girl! I am excited to see some of the bands that I saw at ACL once again, I am thrilled that I will finally be seeing bands such as the Black Keys live, and most of all I am ecstatic that I will have the chance to check off something on my Life Bucket List... seeing Radiohead! Cannot wait, let's just hope and pray that all things go as planned.
