My mother also taught me a love of crafting. Few things bring me more joy than making something beautiful out of nothing. That might also explain why I enjoy cooking & gardening so much. I believe every day is a chance to learn something new and create something - even if it's just trying out a new recipe and making some delicious cupcakes.
I am an east coast girl who fell in love with the wrong coast. I grew up just outside of Philadelphia, but I have been living in Portland for the past 10 years and I am absolutely in love with the city that I live in. I tend to find ways to be inspired by this city daily.
I married my best friend last September & we live together along with our little miniature pincher (Ellie) - they are 2 loves of my life.
I can't resist a photobooth or a yard sale. I collect vintage pyrex, nail polish, and manatee trinkets. I am thrifty - maybe even frugal, but I find a lot of joy in finding creative ways to not be wasteful!
