Hi! I'm Anaise (rhymes with lace)

Mama to daughter Emerson & doxie Reese, lover of Brent. 

Brent and I have been together for 9 years. We met at work (we were servers) and he asked me to cover his shift one day so that he could go surfing. I obviously thought "OH HOW DREAMY!" - he had cute boyish looks and curly brown hair, how could I not immediately fall in love? The rest is history. 

We reside in Hartford, Connecticut in a beautiful light filled loft apartment. Our building used to be an old tire factory, and has so much character. It makes me feel like we are fancy NYC dwellers, without all the hustle and bustle of big city living. 

Charleston, South Carolina is our second home. Brent went to college there, and lived in the beautiful city for 4 years. We have traveled there once a year (sometimes twice) for the last 6 years, and eloped there in April 2017. 

These are a few of my favorite things:  interior design & home decor, dachshunds, yoga, Charleston SC,  barefoot beach walks, breakfast for dinner, chai lattes,  vintage Volkswagens, The Beatles, and Farmer's Market Sunday mornings. 

I'm almost always listening (and singing along in my horrible singing voice) to 90's and early 2000's music. 

I have seen every episode of the Golden Girls.

I love the idea of minimalism and tiny houses, and hope to build one of our own one day. Less is more.
