Midwestern Mermaid.

I am a multi-tasking mama to the sweetest little boys on the planet; Atticus and Sumner. I have the best husband in the world, Justin. I am blessed with an amazing family (they are my rock) and I have the most wonderful friends (they help me roll). I will always call the great state of North Carolina my home. I enjoy being in the kitchen and whipping up some magic, traveling to places near and far, reading just about anything and everything, being outside with the sun and fresh air, sipping on red wine and spending time at the beach with my hubby. I am pretty sure that champagne and salt air can cure just about anything that ails you. Christmas lights make everything better. Blowing bubbles brings out the kid in me. Daydreaming makes the time pass by sweetly. I love the coast, it's in my blood. I believe in the beauty of a hand written note sent the 'old fashioned' way to brighten someone's day. Planning shindigs is what I do best. I like being considerate to others. I have a big heart and the overwhelming desire to give back and help out. It is my goal to start my own philanthropy one day. My dream is to open a tea room sooner than later and to run my own Bed and Breakfast in my semi golden years. A little hospitality goes a long way. I love to knit and I enjoy being crafty. I also take pleasure in shucking oysters. I must admit, I love the challenge.
