When I’m not immersed in gardening or being entertained by our crazy chickens, I can be found either listening to music or finding a way to attend that next concert. As an interior designer, I am constantly styling our house and driving my family crazy in the process! My husband, our identical twin girls and I love the Colorado Mountains! The mountains are home to our favorite places to ski and we enjoy traveling to its national parks. On the flip side of our mountain life, I am originally from Pittsburgh and I was raised on the Steelers and all things East Coast!
