Bio

If you asked me a year ago what I would be doing with my life, this would not be it. I was a city girl working in the corporate world, living my perfectly modern life in my perfectly modern apartment. I loved the hustle and bustle, the influx of people in and out of my life, the noise, the grit, and the perk of having dozens of restaurants all within walking distance.

And then it all changed.

It’s amazing, thrilling, and frightening all that has happened within a single year: I left my corporate job, moved to a new city (which isn’t really a city at all but a quaint little college town surrounded by farmland), got married, and bought a perfectly perfect old home (circa 1918). This sudden onset of newness must have turned my taste preference topsy turvy because suddenly, I had a penchant for all things old; my modern style flew (or was thrown?) right out the window. I was now surrounded by a bucolic lifestyle, living in a small town, in an old home, and I loved it!

Who knew?

So here I am, one year later, living a passion that I never knew existed: I’ve opened my own online vintage shop, am working toward opening a physical retail shop, and heck, I’ve even started a blog! This is my story about a city girl living a country life, and loving every minute of it.
