the Plot:
Small-town Texas Girl marries same Small-town Texas Boy. Boy pursues career in law enforcement from State to Federal level, whisks girl from Texas to North Carolina, and now, Brazil. Girl dabbles in a variety of professions, but realizes true passion for interior design only after becoming a mother, moving overseas, and discovering design blogs.
