About Me

Welcome to Sweet Market Lane!  Thanks for taking the time to get to know me!

The short story is that I was born and raised in a small harbor town in Southwest Michigan.  I have two brothers, a twin sister (she's the blonde one!) and a sister-in-law.  My family is my pride and joy.  In June of this year my baby brother will be marrying his best friend, Marron and I'll have another sister to add to the bunch!  I'll update this picture as soon as I have one of all of us.

I attribute much of my creative spirit to the years I spent at an amazing Montessori school.  They were among the best years of my young life.  Montessori schools should really be called the DIY Academy.  I had the freedom to express myself at a very young age through years and years of art projects, foreign language lessons and gaining my independence through learning to cook, garden, craft and sewing.   I was also blessed with a talented mother who stayed at home with us.  I know it's one of the most difficult jobs in the world and I am grateful every day for her!

I spent my summers sailing on Lake Michigan and upon graduating high school I moved to Chicago where I now live and work.  I spend most of my weekends with my main squeeze Jimmy.  We are passionate about traveling and try to get away as much as we can!  On the weekends when we aren't catching a concert in Chicago you can find me thrifting and antiquing with my mom, gardening, cooking or painting something!

So that's it for now!  Thanks for going along on this journey with me!
