About me

Industry Arts
Occupation Interior Design
Location North Shore of Chicago, Illinois, United States
Introduction Almost 40, living in Chicago (via Arizona, California & Rhode Island) and always searching for the perfect cable knit cashmere sweater, an amazing lip gloss and the perfect cupcake. I'm truly blessed with a great family, friends and health. I have traveled to many places and experienced many great things and hope it will only continue. I'm happy where I'm at even though it's not nearly where I thought I'd be. My life... BTW-you will often find a monogrammed tote on my arm.
