I am married to a very handsome man and great father, Dan. We have two wonderful boys, age 8 and 3 who keep us jumping. I come from a large and fun family of my parents and Dan’s sisters, brothers, their spouses, nieces and nephews and there is NEVER a dull moment. It keeps things interesting. Always.
As a fashion designer, hands down Ralph Lauren! I had a slight obsession with him in high school and wallpapered my entire closet (ceiling and trim too) with his ads. My mother is still mad about how much damage it caused the closet. He is a lifestyle genius and so elegant and timeless. Daphne Guinness and Gwen Stefani – I love to watch for their daring, chic style.
Favorite Places to Shop
Louisville is so lucky to have such a great selection of boutiques. I love Blink, Peacock, Circe, Clodhoppers, Scout for jewelry, but I do a ton of Internet shopping as my shopping time is limited with little boys in tow. I love Zara, H&M and other good finds here and there. I also really enjoy a nod to vintage. Elizabeth’s is a great fix for some really wonderful finds. I joke that I am in “my dark place” right now and am craving a little edge, however.
My boys! I love to see these little fellas play and grow and turn into fine gentlemen. They are a total joy in my life and we have the best time together.
Design is my other passion. Bittners is such an exciting place for me to be, and I have the most exciting, challenging and wonderful career in design. Douglas Riddle, our president and a dear friend, is a true talent and such an inspiration in design for me. Also, I love meeting people and so often my clients become wonderful friends who welcome me into their homes and family life. In no way does this seem like a “job.”
