"Turning your 

love story

into a design reality"

  • LOVE God!   Without my Heavenly Father you would not be seeing this website. My two precious daughters who are the shine to my smile and keep me going and are the reason I desired Entrepreneurship.  I am building a legacy for them to dream and be successful in whatever they choose. 


  • ENJOY long in-depth conversations with my Heart wrapped in a blanket. Nothings better!


  • SAVOUR vanilla wafers, two-bite brownies, kitkats, and rainbow sherbert ice cream from Baskin Robbins only. Also I can't forget triple layered chocolate fudge cake.  Yes I indulge in sweets from time to time.


  • NEED strong connections. I love to build lasting relationships.  Whether in my personal or business life, communication is of utmost importance to me. I'm an extrovert so I thrive when others are around or working on a team.   This is why I love my team.  They stretch me, strengthen me, encourage me and challenge me. 


  • WISH that lasting love relationships were televised more than the recent divorces and suspected breakups in Hollywood. This wish drove me to create Decades of Love.  A blog celebrating marriage relationships that have shared love for over 10 years. Love is worth celebrating and recognizing!

  • OBSESS over things of sentimental value.  Around my house, jewelry and keychains you will find symbols of my love.  My Heart loves nature (wood and metal combinations) and the tree of life.  We compare our relationship to the story of Tortoise and the Hare.  I have tree of live and tortoise jewelry and keychains  Not to mention artwork in my home.   Sentimental things bring me joy when not so good days arise.  My other obsessions are spray painting )makes anything look new) and pearls.  When we meet you will see me with pearls and you will see pearl curtains in the office.  My team and I also all wear pearls on your wedding day!

My Love Language
Words of Affirmation & Quality Time

I simply get the chills and feel like a kid in a candy store when I hear the words "I'm proud of you", "I love seeing your growth", "You are so beautiful to me" etc. The old saying 'Sticks and stones may break my bones but words will never hurt me' just doesn't apply to me. Words hurt and I take them to heart.  I love to just be caught up in a conversations about God, crafts, relationships, my beautiful daughters and of course fashion.  As for 'Quality time', wrap me up in a blanket and place me on a couch in front of a fireplace with my fiance`, kids playing on the carpet in front of us and I'm in heaven. Simplistic and sentimental. These two words explain me:)

My Love Story
The Wedding Planner is getting married

My relationship with my Heart (nickname for my fiance`) started in 2010 when we met at Blackfinn Restaurant at the bar during lunch hour.  The Lakers were on the tv ( they won the championship 2 weeks ago at this time ) and I asked the bartender to please change the channel to anything else.  Then I heard a voice say to me "Oh the Lakers aren't that bad".  Who knew that line would turn into a beautiful love story.  Together we are a family of 5 with 3 wonderful children (neither of which are older than 10 months from each other) and we are loving every moment we get to share and dwell in our love languages (I gift this book 'Five Love Languages' by Gary Chapman to all my couples now).  We are ourselves on the journey 2 'I Do' saying our vows in 2018!
