Interior Design, mompreneur, sahm, wahm -

Since college, I have had the opportunity to work for some amazing companies and to do some pretty amazing things. Each and every position I held helped me grow as a designer in ways that would not become apparent until much later. Working under one of the best high end designers in the Memphis area helped me refine my professionalism and opened my eyes to being bold and unconventional in design. Working for an incredibly successful furniture retailer allowed me to perfect my staging techniques and to improve upon my multi-tasking capabilities. It even provided me the opportunity to be...

Our girls share a room. There is only 2.5 years in between the two of them and they actually enjoy being in the same room. Although they have a bunk bed, most of the time they can both be found either on the top or the bottom, sleeping together.

The crowds and the lines were distracting. The showroom vignettes are wonderful though! They are really well done and show a variety of ways to use the amazing amounts...

I am a third generation hoarder… Not really. We are just crazy emotional people and have a sentimental attachment to every item we have ever owned. It makes it very difficult to let go of things. We were very blessed to have a home to move into when we first got married; the home that had been my grandparents. We lived there for almost 7 years and in 2015, we purchased our own home on 8 acres about 3 miles from my family and that little white house. We knew that the majority of the items in our home had...
