The Tovars got married in 2012. Kristin didn’t want to live in Tucson forever, but Alex, a native Tucsonan, was happy here. Kristin constantly thought other places were more exciting with more opportunities and things to do. It caused her to miss out on all the beauty in the city around her. She started an Instagram account as an experiment in practicing gratitude. Taking pictures of things she loved or found interesting helped grow her curiosity and ultimately her love for Tucson. Through the process, not only did her mindset change, but it truly transformed other areas of her life and her family’s life as well. The account grew into a movement as well as a business, while the family’s heart for Tucson continued to grow simultaneously.
