Laura loves to live and enjoy life. Along with the complexities and challenges it sometimes can be, it's the simplicity in the little things that make her happy. She is always thrilled when she gets to be creative in doing what she loves to do, designing, photography & of course blogging.
Laura was lucky to grow up and attend design school on the beautiful East End of Long Island. As a young adult she moved to the Northern Virginia area to pursue her design career further. For many years she worked in a high end retail furniture store, creating custom furniture and designing interior spaces for many wonderful clients. After many years of living and working in the design industry in NOVA, she moved closer to be near the beach (yet another passion) in Virginia Beach where she currently resides.
Throughout her childhood, creativity has always been a big part of Laura's environment. Growing up on the East End of Long Island she was influenced living with a household full of creative types. Her mother, an artist was also an antiques dealer and talented interior decorator. Her father operated a retail garden and gift shop providing an atmosphere filled with beautiful flowers and gifts. Laura worked with and learned from her long time family friend Judy, who was a very highly sought after exceptional talented floral designer. She had an amazing eye for creating stunning beauty with a variety of materials.
