SO TELL ME ABOUT YOURSELF

I’m getting ready to cohost a Lilly Pulitzer party tonight with Amy and Krystal so I’m turning today’s post over to you! If you’ve read Design Darling for a while, you know the drill; if you’re new, you can copy and paste the mini questionnaire below and leave your answers in the comments! So Tell Me About Yourself is a little series I created to help get to know my readers better and over the years it’s turned into a fun way for you to get to know each other too. I have a hunch today’s responses will be particularly helpful for me — so looking forward to reading them!
