I’m a native North Carolinian and Wake Forest grad, but after twelve years in sunny SoCal I think I can consider myself a Los Angelena. I’m a lover of interior design, coffee/wine/cocktails and gardens with a terrible case of wanderlust. I dislike small area rugs, food on a bone and sand at the beach. My crew includes a husband whose wedding vows included keeping my glass full, a bouncing little girl with the most infectious laugh and a bassett hound with long beautiful ears and a never-ending supply of drool. We live in a 1929 Tudor style home in North Hollywood that we’ve been renovating since the day we closed escrow. But sometimes I dream of selling it all and buying an old decrepit house in South Carolina with a wraparound porch and acres of magnolia trees. My life is full and messy and happy, exactly what I’d always dreamed it could be!
