To the stars...

I've been a Kansan all my life. I was not always excited about this fact, but have grown to realize there's no place I'd rather claim as my home. Kansas houses many of my loved ones and most of my memories. As for my hometown, it's a funky little place; full of its quirks, its characters, a rich history and charm. I love living and working in the heart of downtown and I am proud that Lawrence is different than most of the state. I like to think that a visit can change the way people think of Kansas. We were even acknowledged on Design*Sponge, so you know we're legit!

When I came across the customized key necklaces in the Mucho Mucho Bueno Bueno shop, I knew I had to have one. I brainstormed design ideas and could not settle on one. Finally, I thought "Kansas!!!" I love our state motto...Ad Astra Per Aspera, meaning: "To the stars through difficulty." I finalized my idea & put in my order.

When I got back from Arkansas, guess what was waiting for me? The final product!

In love! After a long & relaxing weekend, this little gem helped ease the pain of returning to real life. Thanks Mucho Mucho Bueno Bueno!

Arkansas post coming soon...

on turning 4

Happy 4th birthday to my best girl, miss Riley! So far she went for a big walk, chased some big sticks, and took a celebratory dip in the creek (ew). Next, she will also be getting a birthday bath. :)
Here is a SUPER unflattering photo of Riley giving me a cuddle when I wasn't feeling so hot. A true friend right there, wouldn't ya say?? It's love.
Hope your Saturday is relaxing and filled with all things wonderful!
