40 Life Lessons from 40 Years
Reflecting on my 40th birthday, here’s a list of 40 life lessons I’ve learned, often the hard way.
I try to design a beautiful life and space that works for me so I can be my best self for the ones I love. I started this creative outlet so I can share what I’ve learned along the way, and even the things I’m still figuring out, about designing my life and home. My hope is that I can inspire YOU in the design of YOURS. And luckily, my hilarious hubby and adorable boys (if I do say so myself) are along for the ride.
