The Lake & a Style Matters Podcast

I hope you're having a great week!  I just got back from a long weekend in Lake Gaston with the family and it is feeling like SUMMER!!!  We haven't all been away together since last summer and it was amazing to just relax and be outside, swimming, boating & fishing together.  The water's already warming up!!!  I loved waking up at the lake and swinging with the baby on the deck swings... ...

Looking Ahead...

This has been one of the busiest years of my life and, though I'm not complaining, we've been doing a lot of thinking on how to grow our company in the right direction while still staying sane.  Our baby, Gisele, has been all over the country with us for multiple magazine show houses and book signings and speaking engagements, we moved and started a renovation as my book launched this past fall, worked on a few photoshoots of our designed spaces, have made our parcel services available for slots in 2016, and are undertaking some our biggest design projects to date (not all are local so there's the travel).   ...
