An Arizona Weekend

Hey guys! I'm back from my trip to Phoenix. I was gone Friday-Sunday so Monday was a bit crazy/stressful/rough as I struggled to catch up. Phoenix was fun though! There was a great turnout at The Shine Project, where I had my little pop-up shop. It was also fun just chatting it up with Ashley. What an inspiration, that girl, let me tell ya.
One of my best friends from Michigan, Adam, lives in Phoenix now so I got to spend some time with him as well. I love spending time with old friends. It makes me remember the "old days" and my "roots." I sure love where I came from.

The rest of this week is going to require a lot of focus and productivity. J and I planned a last minute trip over Labor Day weekend and maaaaybe it wasn't the best idea to take a trip the weekend before Renegade Chicago. Yep. Renegade Chicago is Sept. 6+7 and let's just say.....I have just about everything left to do in order to prepare for it. So. Focus. This week. Lots of it. I've been writing to-do lists daily and it's really helping me remember (and accomplish) my tasks. Things have been busy lately for August. I don't know why but I'm very thankful. I must be doing something right! :p

Do you have any fun Labor Day plans? Also, who lives near Chicago and is going to come see me at Renegade?! xo JA


  1. I live in the Chicago 'burbs and am planning on going to Renegade and I am super pumped you are going to be there!

  2. You should make a card that says, "Home Is Where the Hand Is" for all the Michiganders, Julie!

  3. I wish I was closer and could come see you at Renegade! Good luck - hope you sell loads of cards! :)


Thanks for the comment! I read them all and reply when I can. Please be sure your blogger account is linked to your e-mail so I can do so! (Tutorial on how to do that here: xo JA
