What was your big dream?
To have lots of babies and be really happy…oh, and have a big laundry room and craft space.

How did you accomplish it?
I married the right man. He is totally on board with everything I think and dream about. He helps me achieve and accomplish what I set out for.

Where did you find inspiration to get started?
Looking at Martha Stewart magazines all day long when I was little. That instilled in me what I wanted and the ideal life for me. It sounds silly, but that is true. Also by the way my mother and aunts lived. I took bits and pieces from each of them found true inspiration.

What motivated you to keep going?
My children and my husband. It has always been for them. I wanted a safe, loving and accepting place for them all to live. It has been so wonderful to see it happen. God is so good.

What's your next Big Dream?
My next big dream is to move to a big farm with my family and make bread all day long. I want to travel to France and Italy with my family and let my children see how other people live.

Who is your hero?
Oh, I don’t know- that is so hard! My Nana comes to mind.

What do you dream for your kids?
I dream for my girls to see their divine roles on earth. I want for them to get to travel to other places in the world and let them interact with different people. Gain people skills for later in life.

I want my boys to be leaders in every aspect in life. I want them to be respectful of everyone, especially women. I want them to also get experiences in life that take them all over the world.

What book is on your night stand?
‘To Have and Have Not’-by Earnest Hemmingway. He is my all time favorite.

What is your favorite 'must have' accessory?
Fur collars. I have a few furs (faux of course) that look very lovely with my winter coats. They are my very favorite.
