Here's the real juicy stuff...

My Second Act...

I had a conversation with a friend prior to moving back to California in 2002 and as we were walking through her remodel in progress,  chatting and discussing options, she said "you should do this for a living."  I was flattered but also overwhelmed with the impending move so pushed it to the back of my mind.  Once in California I looked for design programs and found one at the local Junior College.  We moved into our new home in July and school started in August...perfect.  No time to second guess or talk myself out of it.  I signed up for that first Intro class and the rest is history.  I loved it and really did not know, what I didn't know.  I learned so much.

When not working on client projects, we usually have our own DIY projects going on.  I am so blessed that my awesome husband of thirtytwo years doesn't run screaming when I start a sentence with "What if we...?"  He is my Mr. Fixit and we have patched, painted, wallpapered, tiled, etc. many projects over several houses. 



I Love Wine!

I am a wine and food lover. We actually don’t eat out that often because we both love to cook and try different recipes. Part of the fun is finding the right wine to pair with those new dishes.  If you follow along on Social Media, it won't take you long to figure out that wine is definitely a part of our life.   I am blessed to live in an area that has some of the best wine country in the world , easily accessible and  we don't really need much of an excuse to head to a winery.  So many joyful moments in my life have been spent making memories while sharing a bottle of wine. Shout out if you are a wine lover and we can be wine buddies!
