When I was 17, I picked up and moved to Boston to gather up a degree. I also happened to obtain a love for visual art, and a passion for connecting and collaborating with artists. Upon graduating from The School of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, I relocated somewhere familiar and warm. Within 4 months of being back in VA, I somehow managed to open up my dream vintage and handmade boutique called With Lavender and Lace.

This blog was the original With Lavender and Lace internet entity and is filled with photos and ramblings about my life and experiences I have, friends I have made, projects I am working on, ideas I have, people I support, and things that I cant help but share with the world.

I think it is really important to live a happy and fulfilling life. I focus much of my attention on this, and helping my friends/people in general find ways (sometimes small, sometimes big ways) of making life a little nicer. I hope my ideas of happy living can inspire others to take a few steps back and focus on the wonderful things they already have, or discover something new to love.
