I'm a wife, an artist, and a lover of dogs, rock music, and abstract art. I'm a Virginia girl with equal love for California sun and New York grunge. 
I see the most beauty in imperfect things. Ripped jeans. Asymmetrical art. Vintage everything. And a photo with a little girt and grain. I love things that are rugged and little bit off the beaten path. 









Just Get Up


Improving Your Life, Waking Up Early with Starbucks

There really is no other way to say this than – – JUST GET UP. So my challenge to YOU and to myself is to start the day at the crack of dawn. Now if you are anything like me, you love your sleep and love to sleep in. For as long as I an remember I  have never gotten up early. I refused to take 8am classes in college because I literally just COULDN’T DO IT. Then when I did take them – it wasn’t pretty. Since I have been married I have watched my husband get up early and start his day with a cup of tea and the Bible. Even on days off he is up at the crack of dawn. Even though he is really inspring, I still slept in. Recently I have been spending a lot of time with Caroline from Posh PR doing her “Doll Dates” and she has encouraged me to get up early as she does. Truth is – – you get more done if you get up early. You are more productive. I have found that with owning my own business my days FLY BY and I don’t have enough time when I sleep late. So, I’ve been doing it- – I’ve been getting up early. Lately its been 7-7:30 but my goal is 6 (it was 10). Its not easy, and there is no way to make it easy. So grab a cup of joe and JUST GET UP!

Make it fun!!!
