I smile when the sun shines. When dress code and the weather allow, I live mostly in skinny-cropped jeans, casual tops, and cute little flats. I’m pretty sure I’m allergic to formal business attire and white lattice gazebos. I love many things, highest on the list are my husband of 15 years and our sweet giggly 4-year-old daughter. Not far behind them are Dave Matthews Band summer concerts, vacations to the Inn at Bay Harbor, coffee, running, and great restaurants with outdoor seating.
