Can you tell us three fun things about yourself that nobody knows?
"1. I have a big love for interior design and did a whole house renovation with my husband the past couple years. I would love to also flip houses in the future. 2. I’m a dog person and have two sweet, crazy pups. If I was allowed, I’d adopt a bunch more. 3. I’m a home body, and there is nothing that I love more than relaxing at home!."Shop her Patterns
