A handful of beautiful blooms, handwritten notes and pretty parties… These are just a few of the lovely details that keep me going every day. As a blogger, graphic designer and lover of entertaining and stylish soirees, I'm so blessed to be doing what I love day in and day out at SMP.

I live on the coast just North of Boston with my handsome fiancé and our two sweet pets. When I'm not coordinating pretty features for SMP, you can find me designing or writing for my personal blog, Yours Truly, shooting a glittery pink cocktail or obsessing over gorgeous calligraphy.

Aside from working by day and blogging by night (and planning my own wedding!), you might catch me enjoying a margarita at my favorite Mexican restaurant, fishing on our boat during the summer months or walking our pup on the local beach.

I can't say enough how thankful I am to be doing what I love. Working with some of the most talented vendors and bloggers I've ever met is an honor and I can't wait to keep curating the pretty for you!
