Sometimes it just hits me how beautiful life is. All of a sudden the clouds that have been circling around my head part way and I get this amazing picture of how great things really are. I try not to let those little clouds get the best of me (ya know, those ones that circle around you when you have mounting homework and a million odds and ends to do), but hey, sometimes they just do (I'm only human, right?). And then I have these amazing nights with friends that I know I will never forget and realize why didn't I just push those clouds away right in the beginning. Sometimes it just takes a sweet night with good people to put things into perspective for you.
It also really doesn't hurt that I have this really great guy on my team. We've been going strong for close to five and a half years now, and I couldn't imagine my life without him. He makes me smile and laugh at least a 1,000 times a day (I swear).
A few mornings ago Scott and I spent some time on the ASU tempe campus. It was a crispy, chilly morning, and it felt amazing to walk around in the sun. On our way to one of the administrator buildings we stopped by one of my favorite buildings on campus. There's just so much charm in this little writing house, and I love that there is a time capsule buried right next to it. So much history in one little spot! I also really loved my outfit this day! Comfy Blowfish Shoes boots, and so many layers! My winter uniform!
Last night I watched Scott drink close to five or six of cups of coffee (way past his designated caffeine cut-off hour), and I couldn't help but laugh. I might have shared those cups with him, and also drank an iced americano as well. We had such a lovely night with friends and it really made me so thankful to live where I do. I swear, I adore Phoenix!
Last night we also put the finishing touches on The Phoenix Style Collective launch party/benefit for The GrowOP. I can't believe that it's tomorrow! We are going to have free cupcakes + snacks, free wine + beer, sweet music, a button making stand, AND amazing raffle prizes! For anyone that is local (or in town!), we would absolutely love to see you there (Friday, January 27th, 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. at The GrowOP in downtown Phoenix). Check out all of the information right here! Can't wait to see you all there!
