Favorite Things

One of Crystal's favorite things is decorating and she loves watching HGTV!  her current favorite decorating shows are Fixer Upper and Flip or Flop. She loves being inspired to make her home more beautiful.

Crystal also loves to travel. She recently went on a road trip to Las Vegas for shopping and book research with her daughter Madison. At the beginning of March she flew to Oahu, Hawaii to see beautiful beaches and vacation with her husband Steve. 

Crystal loves cooking and buying cookbooks about places that she visits.

Pinterest is her new found love! She has started a fabulous collection of photos of beautiful food and the recipes to create them.

Reading and getting lost in a good book is another of her favorites. When she was young she used to carry a book with her each day to read during the school bus ride home. It wasn't until years later that she figured out her headaches came from motion sickness while reading in a moving bus.

Crystal thoroughly enjoys writing. She's constantly scribbling down notes and ideas for her books and keeps a notebook in her car for whenever inspiration strikes!

One of her most favorite things is visiting beautiful gardens. She loves flowers, plants, and trees and appreciates a well kept yard or garden. Her bucket list has many of the world's famous gardens on it. It's time to check off more places on the list!
