She loves gardening, porch swings, a beautifully set table, a delicious meal surrounded by great conversations, their cabin in the woods and monogramming everything that is not nailed down. She is a devoted wife and fun-loving mom to two extraordinarily cool little gentlemen and is fortunate enough to live on one of Arkansas’s premier state parks.
