A CPA and former Finance Executive, I left my colorful spreadsheets behind to focus on being a mom for the last 10+ years. During this time, I've enjoyed making our home the prettiest, most welcoming place for our family of five (one being a cute Cavachon). I studied and practiced in the business world: strategy, planning, forecasting, acquisitions. I can do the numbers stuff, but I love the creative, artistic, style side of life. I've put some of my creations on my shop, and my head is always thinking of new things to make and share.
I love to write and have a head full of ideas that I've used in my own life and home. I don't mind getting asked where I bought something and have always believed that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. While we don't need to have our home and life replicas of one another, I do believe that sharing ideas, tips, thoughts and tastes is a great way to get to know each other and help someone out. Comparison to perfection will always make us feel inadequate, so I want to share real life with you.
My happy day: Happy kids and husband, a lunch out with my mom and sisters, and a trip to HomeGoods. A dinner at home with good food and a relaxing evening with those I love. A cocktail or glass of wine on the front porch. A cute, furry pet on my lap (see below). Perfect.
Loves: I enjoy interior design, staging pretty places in our home and making our front porch the most inviting on the street. I love scanning Instagram for inspiration for new tablescapes and party themes.
Peeves: I hate returning home to unmade beds and unfolded laundry. I dread hungry kids and last minute grocery runs. And I feel sad when I see dead flower pots covered with snow, because I love beautiful spruce pots to welcome the winter season!
I would love to hear from you. Please send me your questions, comments, and content ideas.
