Amy was the first friend I made in Cincinnati when I moved here 7 years ago. We taught preschool together – and our friendship was a natural fit from the start. We shared a love for teaching little ones, books you can’t put down, (good) coffee and design – it was like I found my hobby soulmate!
I was thrilled when Amy was inspired to start a blog about her life from home. I love the idea of home — the feeling you get when you walk through the front door, the comfort, the security, the joy. When Amy developed Swap for the Change earlier this year, I was delighted she asked me to style the event — from the venue to the flowers — the little things that people remember. I love to decorate my mantle and have started to style my friends’ homes, tablespaces and small entertainment events. And I hope to share some tips for recreating these in your own home.
