I was born in a small town in Virginia and grew up on apples, ballet, and farmers markets. At the age of twelve, my family moved to Texas and started a new life in a much larger city than where we came from. We loved cowgirl boots, country western dancing, singing in church, and swimming in the miserably hot summers. I ended up in Houston, close to the beaches with plenty of palm trees, where the air was damp and within walking distance of a grocery store and Starbucks. I’m a hard-working millennial and lover of family, friends and my bichon-frise, Cassie. Thank you for stopping by!


I started this blog in the summer of 2017, as an outlet to share the things I love, my inspirations, and random thoughts. The Practical Pineapple is a lifestyle blog dedicated to young women who need some creative inspiration and encouragement. Guaranteed to bring a smile to your face, TPP will help you “stand tall, wear a crown, and be sweet on the inside” (just like a pineapple!)
