Our motto for our business, our marriage, and life in general.

"Teamwork makes the dream work."

One of us is the chatty half, the emailer, the blog writer, the big dreamer, and the one who can be just a tad too self-critical.. while the other is the steady half, the eternal optimist, the late-nighter, the editor, the artistic one, and the technical one.

We're Michael & Laura 

oh hey! 

Can you guess who is who?

He was born in England, grew up in Kenya, and moved to Virginia when he was in high school. 

NEXT

michael

A bit about

He absolutely loves soccer and
gets pretty intense when watching a Man U game. 

NEXT

michael

A bit about

He is a man's man. He rides a motorcycle, works on cars,
brews his own beer.. but also one of his favorite movies is Pitch Perfect.. so he is well balanced.

michael

A bit about

He is always dancing and listening to music.. dancing in the most wonderfully insane way to the most randomly eclectic music choices.

michael

A bit about

He is an insanely hard worker. It's not unusual to find Michael up at 2am working on his laptop. He makes sure things get done. And sometimes works just a little too hard.

She loves a well designed mug and some coffee (but mostly the mug). Pair that with a bagel and a back porch for the perfect start to her day.

NEXT

She is all about a DIY project. From wedding cakes to our household decor, and everything in
between, she is the most naturally talented person I know!

NEXT

She's been around the world,
by sea, spending a semester traveling to 12 different countries, like South Africa, Namibia, India, Vietnam, Japan, and Guatemala!

NEXT

She is obsessed with trinkets for the home. Do not let her pass the home section of Anthropologie unless you have a solid couple of hours to lose. 

NEXT

She serves, and serves, and serves! She's always putting other's needs before hers.. Her mornings she serves the community, afternoons focused on our clients, and nights devoted to us.

The ideal companion to walk the aisles of our favorite store. Laura heads to the dollar spot, Michael grabs the diet coke and popcorn. It's like the movies, but better.
