Although my roots grow deep in the Texas Hill Country, I’m a home/friend/family collector and love having backyards in Washington, DC, Sydney, and now Mt Eden with my new Kiwi husband. I love big families (oldest of 6!), beautiful spaces, solving problems, good coffee, and straight-shooters. I believe that summer should last all year, leopard print is a ‘neutral,’ little things matter, friendship is the best kind of wealth, and the world is seriously tiny. If I don’t pick up my phone, you’ll probably find me in my local hot yoga studio or buried in a Brené Brown book in a corner booth at Rad Café. Consider yourselves warned: hang with me long enough and “y’all” will start slipping into your everyday lingo!
