My dream office looks like...
What I love most about my city: We live in a small town right outside of Charlotte, NC. I love the close proximity to the city, and we are only 3+ hours from the beach and less than 2 hours from the mountains. Lots of options!

What is your favorite color palette? Currently, I'm stuck on navy & cream, with pops of chartreuse (as you can see from my living room).

What are your 5 favorite things RIGHT now?
