About me

Location Des Moines, WA, United States
Introduction Hi! I live in the beautiful Pacific Northwest just a few feet away from the rocky Puget Sound. This condo was my very first home purchase, and I've lived here next to the beach for the last 9 years with my silly cat Tula and recently my new handsome hubby Curtis! My husband and I were just married last August and we love being married! Curtis will contest that I rearange and tear this little apartment up on a weekly basis, but hes a good sport and always helps me do it, and secretly deep down, he gets excited when he can see our vision starting to take light. I am a nanny by day for a wonderful family, and I feel so lucky to go on daily adventures with their son "Liam." Actually, he helps me find crafting material all the time! He notices every rock and stick on the ground we pass, and sometimes he really finds some terific treasures! He makes me stop and smell the roses every day, and I love that! My husband and I also work every summer for one of our local farms. We sell delicious grass fed beef at the Des Moines Waterfront Farmers Market every June through October. We love to eat local organic food and we love being an extended part of the family at Happy Mountain Farm.
