designdeamore Running around doing last minute preparations for our next shoot on Saturday.
Currently I am learning to love Arizona and all of its charm. In an effort to do so, we are beginning a new series called Discovering Phoenix where we'll show you our favorite local spots that just make our hearts happy.
After all, if your heart isn't happy, how can your soul be? That's the goal here, to inspire you too see the beauty around you, on your person, and within your soul. These are the unique components that make up our lives. Let's learn to love and utilize them, shall we?
First stop:
Why? Because it makes my ♡ happy
See what I did there? #ihavethisthingwithfloors
What are your favorites local spots? Let us know below!

crzy4az Sunset crowds kicked in as we were coming down #piestewaPeak -- change of pace for me to wear white shirt and crank up my music on headphones and not make eye contact with anyone. Opposite of my usual McDowell steward behavior. Songs I had on loop: "100" TheGame/Drake and "The Hills" TheWeekend. And "Man of the Year" SchoolboyQ. If those don't get your blood pumping - nothing will. Now time for adult beverages and a long wait for a table LOL #hikearizonaitrocks #phoenixAZ #instagramPhx #instagramaz #phoenixpreserve #sky #saturdayNight #dateHike 1w

crzy4az Maybe hiking #piestewaPeak and Tom's Thumb in same day little much but WOW #noRegrets with this gorgeous view from true #summit #peak and nice #clouds and perfect #breeze. 🏼 Really nice #dateHike #saturdayNight -- #hikearizonaitrocks #phx #instagramPhx #phoenixAZ #hikeAZ #arizonahiking #sky #ilovetohike #hikingismytherapy #visitarizona And I don't know why but parking lot not even half full - hardly anyone out here - so unusual - maybe because everyone ran marathon this morning? Anyway it's nice to have it be so uncrowded. 1w
  •   hikearizona I can barely remember this morning, yet alone five years ago... lol 1w
  •   hikearizona I go to the pole & Dave gives me crap about not going to the summit. Dave goes to the summit and I give him crap about going off trail =) 1w
  •   crzy4az @hikearizona LOL - when you are doing laps I can see wanting to ring a bell and then getting back down fast. I have HAZ file cabinet memories big time - like a little creepy - but can't help it. 1w
  •   arcadiarealestateaz Nice photo! Very dramatic feel :-) 1w

designdeamore Guess what?! It's Friday AND it's #EarthDay! 🌎
That's right and to celebrate we're back with another installment of #FridayIntroductions to welcome all of our new friends to Design De Amore. We're so glad you're here
The picture here is one of my favorites from our anniversary trip to San Francisco. It is so simple and yet incredibly complicated once you look at the detail. 🌳
This is very similar to my time spent in SF. It was a time of self-discovery, about learning what city life is like, the strange realities of living on your own for the first time, and what it's like to truly enjoy a picnic in the park.
If you're like me and just itching to get out of Arizona for a bit, I definitely recommend finding yourself in San Francisco. #sanfrancisco
