I'm feeling really good. Most of my energy is back. I'm rarely feeling sick due to my pregnancy. And it is spring. And Connecticut is gorgeous. In the springtime. It's beautiful in the winter. Amazing in the fall. I haven't been here for a summer yet. But spring. Wow, there's so many flowers and so much to see.


I’ve also been working on a fun creative project that has been on my mind for years and I am excited to finally bring it to fruition. I'm working on a book of personal essays about my interior design career, my journey, the highs and lows as I have been in the industry for 18 years now. If there’s something you want to know more about, please send me an email at with what you’re wanting to learn so I can make sure to include it in my book. 


Without further ado, let’s dive into the mailbag. 


This episode, we discuss…

[14:56] Putting the finishing touches on a living room (Stephanie)
