Welcome to Hello LovelyLand.

 From our fixer upper in Chicagoland with its serene, mostly-white European inspired interiors, I aim to bring a real life renovator perspective to interior design inspiration stories inspiring home decor, decorating, renovation and DIY.

I live with my husband in a fixer upper we are renovating ourselves. We also made over a second vacation home in Arizona.

Creativity is my passion. I renovate houses, paint pictures, like working in my pajamas, bake cinnamon bread, play the piano badly, write articles for magazines, and tutor students (My master’s degree is in Counseling).

If you are journeying with breast cancer or love someone who is, you may be interested in exploring glimpses of my own journey with BRCA2 diagnosis.

I paint abstracts like the one behind me.

Sometimes the anti-cancer journey is manageable, and sometimes it’s a big ol’ mess…love keeps making it all okay.

I rarely take myself too seriously, and I have proof. See an awkward Pharrell happy dance with our sweet shih tzu which illustrates I indeed graduated Summa Cum Laude from The Molly Ringwald School of Dance. Oy.
