Occupation: I’m a realtor for The Charlotte John Co. in Little Rock and a blogger.
Best known for: My blog, Live the Home Life, which I began two years ago. I chronicle being a single, twenty-something, do-it-yourselfer and people follow my home renovation and furniture rehab projects.
Lives in: A 1960s ranch-style home in midtown Little Rock. It hadn’t been updated at all when I bought it, which was ideal because I wanted to do everything myself and put my own stamp on it. I’ve been here a little more than a year, and I’m about halfway there.
My favorite part of my house is: My dining room, which is actually the most-used room in my house. I don’t have a home office, so I sit at the dining table with my laptop, and it’s also where I entertain when friends come over for dinner. A red chest in the room is one of my favorite pieces because it was my first rehab project. It showed me what I could do with a little paint and elbow grease.
I’m most at home: In paint clothes and a ponytail, working on a home project. My dad is an architect and my childhood home was always under construction. Our Saturdays were spent with our paint clothes on, a bandana over our hair and getting to work. That’s still an important part of my life, piddling around my house and making it my home.
