To kick off my first Blog post, I"m going to share 5 Fun Facts about me!
I obtained a degree in Interior Design at North Dakota State University. I didn't start my own business until the economy went bad in 2008 and I was laid off from a high-end interior design firm in Minneapolis. It was at that point that my friends and family said, "Now I can afford to hire you!". I started my business with selecting paint colors, selecting fabrics for reupholstery, finishing basements and even staging friends homes that were on the market. My business has been based in Minnesota, Iowa and now Wisconsin.
I enjoy hiking. One of my favorite hikes was to the Plain of Six Glaciers Tea House that overlooks the Victoria Glacier (in the background of the photo) near Lake Louise. If you ever plan a trip, it is located outside of Banff and is gorgeous! It was a memorable trip with three friends and we cannot wait to go back!!
When I was a child, I wanted to be a rancher and have horses. After a trip to a Dude Ranch in Texas, I decided to take horse riding lessons as a way to celebrate turning 40! Shortly after starting the lessons, I was able to lease a senior horse named Classy. She taught me so much in the 2 years I was able to lease her. Unfortunately, due to her old age, she passed away and I'm back to taking lessons. One day, I hope to own my own horse.
I love chocolate. Is there anything more to say about that?!
I LOVE cowboy boots! I feel like a girl can never have too many boots. Currently, I only have 10 pairs of "cowboy" style boots and booties. I'll keep you updated if I get any new ones for Christmas. I have a pair of Ariat Dixon X Pendleton booties in white on my list for Santa this year. :)
Hope you enjoyed this 5 Fun Facts confessional! In the future, I hope to have some fun blog posts about furniture, decor and more.
I'm so thankful for you!
