Get a glimpse of who I am and what inspires me by browsing my work and site. Take a look around and, if you like what you see, drop me a line. I would love to get to know you too.
I am not good at telling jokes, but I will laugh at yours. I have smile lines, am a terrible speller and can’t hold a note but I don’t care – I like my imperfections, they make me – me. I believe in individuality, being approachable, intentional and authentic. I love things that are tasteful and subtle, timeless and distinct and, I believe, that simplicity is making a comeback.
My husband, Jason, is passionate, thoughtful, respectful, and tender. I have never met anyone like him and was drawn to him immediately. He has a great smile and is very perceptive of how I am feeling. I am in it for keeps.
I want to foster a family that plays together and laughs – a lot – and gets messy on occasion. I hope we can challenge each other but always stand by one another – much like how my parents raised me. I feel deeply connected to my ancestry and am grateful for my parents – they are amongst my closest friends.
I don’t need a lot of things and prefer to spend my money on atmosphere and experiences over possessions. I can’t make a decision without doing extensive research first but, once I have made up my mind, I won’t compromise. Because of this, when I do spend money, I am happy to invest in something that is important and meaningful to me – that is of high quality, reflects my ideals and is beautiful. For these things I will have been known to indulge myself and splurge a little.
You will most often find me at a local, organic restaurant; sipping red wine on my patio with girlfriends; enjoying a night out at a show with Jason; or reading by some form of water. I have traveled extensively and greatly value diversity. I live for experiencing new things, exploring different cultures, and finding myself through taking time away.
My one piece of advice to engaged couples is to make it your own, let your wedding be a reflection of who you are. Once married, let yourself be vulnerable, give your partner the opportunity to step up and be blown away by how close you can feel to someone else. Someday I may have a piece of advice to parents but in the meantime I will be taking notes.
I am a hugger — be ready, you’ve been warned.
