The cure for anything is salt water: sweat, tears, or the sea. | Isak Dinesen

Recently, a dear friend described our childhood together as a sun-soaked, mossed-drenched, plastic-covered paradise (today, we both share a love of design and the color seafoam green). A native of Pensacola, FL, I grew up on the Gulf of Mexico and come from a long line of sailors. I spent time as a child sailing the waters of Mobile Bay in a sunfish and visiting my grandparents, who lived in the Bahamas, and taking excursions there in a flying scot to places with names like Man Island, North Eleuthera, and Sistern Rock.

As an adult, my interests are many and varied, but I try to incorporate creativity and inspiration in everything I do. The water plays out in many of my inspirations, from travel and home decor to cooking (fancy sea salt, anyone?). It is my hope that this website will convey that to you through its vignettes of my daily life and that you will leave feeling a bit more inspired.
