I live on a small island in Beaufort County, South Carolina. I am a transplant and have become rooted in the Lowcountry lifestyle. It is a culture that connects people to land and the surrounding waters. It has a history of great significance. The sensibilities about time, sense of place and design aesthetic are unique to this region.
After living and working in the Lowcountry for 20 years, I decided recently to make a change in my life. I left the 8-5 working world. It has taken me a bit of time to decide upon the next chapter. It has taken me time to be guided by my intrinsic interests. It has taken me time to get out of my own way! And now I know what’s next.
My most joyful times are spent working with fabrics, flowers, furniture and color to create comfortable and inviting indoor and outdoor spaces to enjoy with my husband, family and friends. When I follow my heart I know my truest desire is to spend my time in the pursuit of becoming a “maker” of remarkable Lowcountry experiences, delicious foods, beautiful décor, glorious gardens and a fit, healthy life.
Through this blog I join the many who derive joy from engaging and sharing their creative endeavors. There is so much that makes the Lowcountry life a special experience. I hope I bring a fresh voice to the chorus of those who would enjoy a life lived with a Lowcountry twist.
