imageIf you know me, you know how much I love Tom Petty. Monday was already a roller coaster ride with the mass shootings in Las Vegas. And then I came home this afternoon to learn that Tom Petty was found unresponsive after a heart attack. Then the news said he was dead. Then reports said he was alive. And now it’s official.

imageTom Petty was my teenage crush. I had posters on my wall. I stayed up late at night to watch the Heartbreakers perform on shows like The Midnight Special and Friday’s.

imageI also wanted to dress like Tom Petty. Such unique, effortless style. Pictured up top is an embroidered sweatshirt I’ve been working on since the summer.

I was fortunate enough to see Tom Petty perform three times, most recently in July. Mr Andrew bought me tickets for my birthday. Last night, he made me a playlist of my favourite Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers tunes and we sang along and slow danced.
