Growing up in Virginia, I always loved the aesthetic of historic homes, beginning with my grandparents’ 1792 brick farmhouse in the Shenandoah Valley. I graduated from T.C. Williams High School in Alexandria (go Titans!) and attended Wake Forest University where I met David.
I then moved to Germany for a year as a Fulbright grantee before getting my Master’s degree at Georgetown University.
Upon graduation, I commuted hours every day around the DC Beltway as David did the same for his job and after a few months, we decided to both uproot our lives and relocate to Charlottesville, where we’ve lived ever since. Neither of us had any experience with a fixer-upper but we jumped in with the confidence only two kids in their mid-twenties would have.
I had gotten great joy out of renovating our 1850 farmhouse over the years, which has been featured in red in two HGTV “House Hunters” episodesas well as: Woman’s Day, Good Housekeeping, Country Living, Remodelaholicand other fun sites!
Starting in 2021, I decided to return to blogging to share inspiration and ideas from my farmhouse but also bask in the beauty of other historic Virginia homes with my readers.
David and I have a daughter, Eve, and three sons: Wilson, Chip & Briggs. When I am bored from all the free time that comes with being a mom to four kids, I enjoy gardening, hanging out with my pet kune kune pigs Tinkerbell and Mr. Smee, and dreaming up the next interior design project to tackle one day when my hands aren’t quite so full. I’m so grateful to share this snippet of my surroundings on this site and hope you find some joy from it, too!
