I have a deep love for interior design, having studied it in Atlanta & San Diego.  Now, as a Real Estate broker, I enjoy everything real estate and home related. Once you’ve purchased your house you want to make it your home and as a natural continuation of that process, I decided to share quick, fun tips on everything home-related and entertaining including decorating, recipes, savings and more.
