Rooted in Carolina, but enduringly dreaming of California, my design, culinary, and family lifestyle channels the casual and organic ease of the West Coast – blue skies, laid back living, and big dreams.  My little family does not conform to a set of standards – we make them up as we go!  I am endlessly inspired to create a home, recipes, and family life that is classic, comfortable, and chic without being overcomplicated.  Join me, won’t you?
