My husband, Ronnie, grew up in Alaska. We met because his dad reconnected with his high school sweetheart from Hawaii, who is one of my mom's oldest friends.
Ronnie got not one, but TWO sister dogs while I was on my first overseas work trip to Vietnam and China... about six months before we were to be married. I said I would get to name them and lucky for him they're the cutest and best behaved dogs. I only had goldfish as pets growing up so this was a very big life change.
I've always known I wanted to work in fashion. My earliest memory is watching the original 101 Dalmatians and sketching black and white outfits for Cruella de Vil. (My love for black must stem from this!)
I was super fortunate the summer before senior year of college to intern for a fashion PR company and showroom in London. Living and working in the city with about 100 other people in my program is something I'll never forget.
I'm a Christian and excited to get plugged into a church and community in the area now that Ronnie has a M-F job. This is the first time I believe in our entire relationship we've worked the same schedule while living in the same city.
