The kind that just knows. The kind that doesn’t need to speak to hear what is said. The kind of love that makes dancing in the kitchen feel magical. I believe in connected souls. The kindred spirits meant to love each other.

Ever since I was a little girl, my biggest dream in life was to find my soul mate. All I ever wanted was that one person who felt like my other half. I guess that’s why I’m so obsessed with what I do. I am captivated by love, in whatever form it comes in. 

I believe in love.


You may see me shed some tears at your wedding.

I just can’t help it. I am so moved and inspired by love and connection between two souls. This is the energy that fuels my work and my “why”. I am a love-obsessed storyteller and I wouldn’t change it for the world. My heart is so full that I know I am right where I am supposed to be, doing what I was made to do. I believe in love — the kind that just knows. 

Me and my soul mate, sergio

They're real.

Lover of Wildflowers 

. . .

I love the unexpectedness that comes with a bundle of wildflowers. They’re not perfect, but that’s why I find them so captivating. 

Shameless Netflix Binger

There’s something so cozy about cuddling up for a night in to watch my favorite shows. I love comedies, but am also down for a good drama or documentary any day!

Adventure Seeking Traveler

Something always on the topic of conversation at my house is “where next?”. Me and Sergio love to travel and explore together. We have a long bucket list of destinations we dream of visiting!

Hot Chocolate Connoisseur

My favorite recipe: 1 1/2 cups trader joe’s coconut milk, 1/4 cup local honey, 1-3 tbs of pure cocoa, depending on how chocolatey you like it! A pinch of sea salt, topped with marshmallows and made with love!

Art Obsessed Visionary

Whether it’s designing a space or making images, I appreciate art at it’s purest form. I love to envision something and then make it come to life.

Made-From-Scratch Wannabe Chef

I love having whole ingredients and transforming them into something new. I guess that’s exactly how the artistic process is as well, which is probably why I love it so much.
