About me

Occupation Domestic
Location NY, United States
Introduction Hi my name is Tina and I am here because first and foremost I love interior design, love houses and love beautiful things! I believe that life is what you make of it. And as I get older, I see the importance of living life to its fullest for that day, not always thinking about the future, but enjoying the moment. Secondly, we have started to build our dream house, a french styled modified chateau/country home. We started about two and a half years ago and its been a long process. I love to write and thought it would be fun to chronicle this journey thorugh a blog and share my adventures, experiences, and my interests wtih fellow readers who love the same things. If you like what you see, I hope you will subscribe to my blog and follow me, I promise it will only get better and better as things progress. All the best in 2011!
