What's Your Role At SMP?
In addition to crafting real wedding features and publications for our sister site, SMP Living, I spend my days dreaming up inspiring original content in home, entertaining, fashion & beauty, travel, motherhood and more!

Where Do You Call Home?
I live on the coast north of Boston, near Newburyport with my husband (Shawn), our sweet baby boy (Chase) and our happy pup (Savannah).

Where Can We Find You When You're Not At Your Computer?
In my spare time, you can find me enjoying my time off with my husband and our baby boy, strolling on the beach, indulging in a new recipe or entertaining family and friends.

What Inspires You?
I love this quote from Jim Elliot, "Wherever you are, be all there." In doing so, I'm inspired by subtle beauty all around us. Whether it's the pattern on a floor tile or the colorful food on my plate, I believe that life's little moments should be infused with style. I hope to inspire you to do just that in your everyday!

What's Your Favorite Way To Spend A Weekend?
In my opinion, weekends should never be for to do lists or sleeping in. Life is too short! I love getting up early for snuggles with our baby boy, brunching it whenever we can (or making crepes at home!), sitting by our pool or walking on our local beach and indulging in dinner dates at our favorite local restaurants.
