where did you grow up & what is your favorite thing about growing up there?
Belton, Texas; it is a small town, so it is quiet, peaceful and there's no traffic! I still love going to visit my parents there because it's nice to get out of the hustle and bustle of Houston now and then! My parents live on a lot of land, so it's nice and relaxing to go there and get a breath of fresh air.
alma mater: Texas A&M University
where do you draw inspiration from?
I love reading wedding blogs, photography blogs and wedding magazines. I could look at wedding photos for days!
why did you choose the wedding industry?
I've always loved the event industry and particularly weddings - helping couples make their big day unique to them and that much more special is what I love! And of course, the lovely Haley Hughes with En Vogue Events introduced me to Kristen. :)
what is your favorite thing about working in stationery?
I love seeing new trends and patterns. Because I don't have a design degree, I also love seeing how fonts alone can change the overall look and feel of stationery!
do you have any pets?
Yes! I got my cat Molly 4 years ago - I adopted her from an animal shelter in Austin. She is a Maine Coon/Tabby mix and is such a diva!
if had to choose one "block" font and one "script" font to write in for the rest of your life, what would they be?
That's a tough one... I love Trajan (boring!) and Feel but probably not together; but then my new favorite script font is Always - it looks so pretty and hand-written!
non-wedding related guilty pleasure?
I love scrap-booking, traveling, and eating anything sweet... especially chocolate! I enjoy watching chick flicks with my fabulous co-worker Kathryn and Glee!
