Best of Our Valley Spotlight: Why I Love Where I Live, ‘Best Tucson Lifestyle Instagram’

For over the past 20 years, we’ve celebrated the Valley’s best. From the top businesses and professionals to the people who make it all happen, Arizona Foothills Magazine’s annual Best of Our Valley contest recognizes Arizona’s crème de la crème across more than 400 categories. From the best doctors and best resort down to the best cup of coffee you can find around town, each Best of titleholder is chosen by those who know the city best – our readers.

Each week, we’ll be highlighting individual winners from Best of Our Valley 2018, who share their advice, insights and thoughts on what it means to be a part of this exclusive list.

The Best of spotlight is on Why I Love Where I Live (@whyilovewhereilive), who snagged Best Tucson Lifestyle Instagram. Congrats, Why I Love Where I Live!

AFM: In a brief 2-3 sentences, please tell us a little bit about Why I Love Where I Live:
Why I Love Where I Live creates meaningful connections between people and place all through the lens of gratitude. We want to see people find what they love about where they live in a way that moves them to continue investing in that community and continue to make it a place worth loving. We started as an Instagram account as part of a personal experiment in gratitude for our founder, Kristin, and now have a retail shop in Tucson with products that encourage people to celebrate where they live! 
AFM: What does it mean to you to be a Best of Our Valley winner?
We’re honored to join the other amazing individuals and businesses that represent the Best of Our Valley! As a business, community support and acknowledgment is so crucial to our success! 
AFM: In your opinion, what is the best part about being the winner for Best Tucson-Based Fashion Designer? 
Having the title of Best Tucson Lifestyle Instagram means that we get an opportunity to spotlight where we live and give not just Tucson, but the entire state of Arizona, a chance to hear about what we’re doing and why it’s so important.
AFM: Have you seen any benefits as a result of being a BOOV winner?
We haven’t yet, but we imagine it will only help grow our audience and provide new opportunities!
