Birthday Month Celebration!

This past weekend I turned 29! I love having a reason to get together with people and celebrate! Since I can't have you all over to my house to celebrate with me, I thought I'd take the chance to introduce myself a little more right here on the blog!

A Few Things About Me:

  • I LOVE coffee and all breakfast foods. (Including pop-tarts)
  • My husband and I got married about a year and a half ago! (January 25, 2014)
  • I originally studied interior design before going back to school for a graphic design degree.
  • Cumming, GA is where I grew up...then I moved to Athens, GA for college...and then to Charleston, SC after college graduation.
  • My current favorite book is The Insanity of God by Nik Ripken.
  • I get excited talking about entrepreneurship and small businesses.
  • I could spend a lot of time in West Elm, Banana Republic, Anthropologie, and Hobby Lobby. :)
  • When there is free time, I prefer to be outside.
  • I love community. I think that strong friendships are a great treasure.
  • A perfect evening for me would probably involve an outdoor concert under the stars. (Preferably a Need to Breathe concert).
  • My favorite aspect of interior design is fabric selection.
  • I think coffee mugs are one of the greatest gifts. They are so functional, and every time you use them, you think of the person who gave it to you!
  • One of the many things I've learned in marriage is the need to makes things right when you hurt someone. Forgiveness is huge. I've also learned how freeing marriage is! 
  • My desire is to serve Jesus.
  • Given the choice, I'd rather bake than cook.
  • At times, I can be a perfectionist...I have to be careful about it! :)
  • One of my favorite things about the fall season is Georgia football. 
  • It is really hard for me to say no to sugar...especially doughnuts!
  • I love getting one-on-one time with people.
  • I definitely believe in being silly!
  • I love that I get to do graphic design for a living!...let me know if you need anything designed!
