“I don’t consider myself to be a fashionista, but I do love fashion. I get excited when I’m dressed up in heels, but I am just as excited when I have on a cute t-shirt, strappy sandals or pumps.” With a background in senior living sales management and a passion for fashion, I started DOSS COUTURE almost a year ago. I began designing t-shirts as a hobby. Read more>>

For four years in H.S., I was a part of the Media Academy which had an outstanding platform and curriculum at the time and still does.

I watched a time-lapse of a rosette cake being decorated and then probably about 50 more videos that night. It was mesmerizing and therapeutic at the same time. On impulse, I bought all the supplies I could find and baked my first cake that coming January. At the very beginning and even now, my motto, along with Live life sweeter, was “Just do it.” Read more>>

It was the best decision she ever made for me. Read more>>

My whole life is documented in pictures, thanks to my two photographer aunts. Every family function, vacation, and even small things like church on Sundays can be found in a physical photo album on their shelf.

The road to Belle & Kai started with my love of photography. I picked up my first professional grade camera because I wanted to take better photos of my children and be able to capture all these fleeting moments. From there, my daughter became my go to model whenever I wanted to practice a technique and I would try to find something unique for her to wear so she could model for me. Read more>>

Rebecca and Scot Jones

We have both always been drawn to Real Estate. We purchased our first fixer-upper right before our wedding and spent the first two years of our marriage ripping down walls and redoing every inch on the house. That was thirty-five years ago and we have repeated that same process many times since. We love working together to make a home extraordinary. Read more>>
