“HSS stands for happiness, success and style and I hope that what you read here inspires you in those three areas of your life. The blog’s name came from the way my mom signed a card a few years ago ‘to happiness, success and style’ and the saying was so perfect that it just stuck. Why ‘feed?’ It’s a bit of a play on the ‘RSS feed’ which you know is a regularly updated web feed of information. So there you have it, the HSS feed.”

“I want to document day to day things that make me feel alive in my blog and I would love to share that light and excitement with you.

Things that I love; Michael, our pups, Bailey and Mambi, smutty Bravo shows (where my Housewives at?), red wine, fashion (especially Thrifting-it’s an addiction), documenting beauty through a lense, serving the Lord, a good pot of coffee, bold prints, simplicity, exploring hot spots around Pittsburgh, getting lost in a good book, and tweaking things in a house to make it a home.
