Hello! I’m Tara…
I’m a country girl from my cowgirl boots to my down home roots. Wednesday nights are for country dancing.
Blush pink is my kryptonite! If you wear blush pink to our photo session, you will be my new best friend. 90% of my impulse buys are something that is blush pink… oops!
I love going to Hobby Lobby, although my wallet feels differently. Thank goodness for their online coupons!
When it comes to Starbucks, I order one thing and one thing only: Venti Pink Drink, light ice (Strawberry Acai Refresher with coconut milk instead of water). If you haven’t tried it… you need to! Plus it’s blush pink so… obviously I had to get it!
My favorite season is Christmas, and not just because I have an unusually large collection of Christmas socks- I love giving gifts and making people happy!
