At Home

June 7, 2014

I closed and moved into my very first home almost two weeks ago and it still all feels a bit surreal. I keep saying that this all happened so quickly, which is the absolute truth. I’m settled in and am truly grateful for this space. It’s amazing how different it feels walking into a house […]

March 12, 2013

Happy Here

October 2, 2012

Sitting under a canopy of tree branches and the soft flicker of candle light, I was asked “what do you think of Charlottesville so far?” A small smile must have crept across my face, as I looked across the table and beside me to see some of my very favorite people in this town. The […]

Heritage Harvest Festival

September 20, 2012

There is something magical about being able to share in an experience when a person is just doing what they love. The Heritage Harvest Festival, held at Monticello, is a celebration of Jefferson’s contribution to agriculture in the US and his status as America’s first foodie. I was lucky enough to receive an invite to […]
