A little bit about
I am consummate workaholic in need of a hobby (hence this site). I am recently married to an amazing man named Andrew who you will see pop up throughout the site and we live in a beautiful townhome that we purchased a couple of years ago in the Baldwin Park area of Orlando, right near downtown which is where we spend most of our time. I attended UCF where I studied Advertising and Public Relations.
On the daily, I am a Territory Director for a Tallahassee and Atlanta based digital media solutions company that specializes in graduation and endurance sports photography. If you have graduated from high school or college in the U.S. or run a major marathon throughout Europe, Canada, Mexico and the U.S., chances are we’ve taken your photos. My job allows me the luxury, and sometimes burden, of traveling all over. The downfall to that is “all over” sometimes includes random places in the square states in the middle of the U.S.
When I am not on the road for work, I work from home and need noise in the background so I also watch A LOT of TV. There isn’t much on Bravo that doesn’t cross my screen so I am here to admit that I am, in fact, a Real Housewives fanatic…there isn’t a city I don’t watch (except the brief Athens one and Bangkok because they’re not subtitled in English but if they were, watch out). I love pop culture, reality television and all the mainstream shows as well.
Just like Will, I am a workaholic and can be found either at my store or answering emails at home. I spend a large portion of my week as an Assistant Store Manager at Publix which was my first job when I was younger. Right after high school, I enrolled in the Marine Corps and spent time serving in Asia and the Middle East. Nowadays, I don’t get to travel as much as I would like but when I do get the chance to get out of town, just know that it’s on. In addition to being a workaholic, I am also a work-outaholic if that’s a thing and can be found at the gym almost every morning when my schedule allows. I have run countless marathons, half marathons and even completed a couple of triathlons. You may not see me post here as much as my husband, you will see me come through in various ways.
How did we get here
As I mentioned, I am a workaholic and I desperately needed a hobby so that I would actually take some breaks from work. I have a slight obsession with cologne, bags, champagne, food and various other things that I have too much of and I also have a lot of friends with pretty cool businesses and jobs. Sharing all of these things is something I’ve always enjoyed so I thought, what the hell, let’s turn what was a wedding website into something more. I am a big believer in shopping small, supporting local and an even bigger believer in supporting friends who have some of those small business so you’ll see a lot of that here. I also am a big believer in supporting charities that make a difference in the community and the world. While you may not always have the extra money or time to help, there are many ways to help make the world a little bit better.
