A Bit of Nashville

Last week, I made an impromptu visit back home to Nashville for the holiday weekend. It was a timely escape during the transition between my old job at Havertys and my new work with Arteriors Home. Here are a few tidbits from the weekend. My mother, brother Nick, and I stopped by the new Antique...

Mad Men = Mad Style

Photo Credit: David Walker It’s a well know fact that my roots are in the hills of middle Tennessee where I grew up. But Tennessee isn’t only home to moonshine and bluegrass (although I am a big fan… of the bluegrass, that is). In fact, my Southern homeland can be quite sophisticated at times! This...

Jazz It Up!

By now, you are all probably aware of the fact that David and I enjoy supporting the local arts scene and expanding our experiences with music, dance, art and the like. Since our transition from Tennessee to Texas, we have been thrilled to discover a diverse and vibrant arts community in Fort Worth (how lucky...

Fierce on Facebook

What does a person do when work is a long distant thought, house chores are taking a back seat, free time with the hubby is aplenty, and the weather is a perfect mix of brisk and sunny?…Go to the Zoo!! (and eat sushi for dinner, yogurt for dessert and hot chocolate to top it off)....
