I moved to Gilbert Arizona last March and I have loved living here! So much so that I’ve added two Gilbert items to my Etsy shop which are listed below and have definitely bought some Gilbert swag for my own home from other local makers. So here are my favorite things for the Gilbert lover in your life! <3
These adorable marble coasters from LaceGraceandPeonies.

I live in two worlds. One is full of coasters and the other is my city planning world. Well, this week my two worlds collided. My coasters were given as gifts at a planning event in Gilbert and I had no idea until I received this picture from one of the recipients. What a small world we live in 🌎.
This watercolor map from ClickBloom featuring the Heritage District’s most loved landmarks like Joe’s, The Hale Theatre and of course, the water tower.

Hey. Do you mind if I tell you a story? One you might not have heard. All the elements in your body were forged many many millions of years ago in the heart of a faraway star that exploded and died. That explosion scattered those elements across the desolations of deep space. After so, so many millions of years, these elements came together to form new stars and new planets. And on and on it went. The elements came together and burst apart, forming shoes and ships and sealing wax and cabbages and kings. Until, eventually, they came together to make you. You are unique in the universe. There is only one of you. And there will never be another.
