They wanted to grow some fresh food for their family, and then the hobby grew into a larger garden with tons of veggies, flowers, herbs, and everything you can imagine!!

23 years ago I got my first job in television shopping. It wasn't something that I always knew I wanted to do, it was something I was lucky enough to fall into because I really needed a job! Ironically, it suits my skills very well. I love to shop and I love talking to people . Over my last 20 years at QVC I have had the most amazing opportunities met the most wonderful people and gone to the most beautiful places. I cannot tell you how lucky I feel. But there comes a time when you have done what you can do and it is time to see what else there is. And that is where I am. After a lot... Continue Reading

I can’t believe it! If you’re like me, summer seems to have come and gone in just a blink.
