please give a warm welcome

Hello readers, I would like to introduce you to my dear friend, Ariana!  She is one fabulous, classy lady and an incredible new mother.  I met Ariana two years ago while working together at a Manhattan based interior design firm.  I started my first day there and we became instant friends, perhaps because we have so much in common?!  While we grew up in very different places (she's a born and raised New Yorker and I'm from a small town upstate), our lives have way too many similarities.  We've both dabbled in advertising, marketing and teaching but ended up in interior design.  We are both Sag's with Virgo husbands (well, almost husband for me) and we will soon have the same initials (once I change my last name).  

But our greatest similarity has to be our love of interior design and our decorating style.  Just like me, Ariana leans more toward neutral colors and natural, calming interiors.  And since we work so well together, we have recently decided to join forces and combine our design talents into one firm, fittingly named, The Elegant Abode.  We are very excited about this new venture and cannot wait to get started!

As an added bonus, Ariana will be joining me here on the Elegant Abode blog to contribute to our daily inspirational posts.  She has sensational taste for interiors and I'm sure you will love her wit and charm.  I know that you will enjoy what Ariana has to bring to the table and we will certainly keep you updated on our new firm, The Elegant Abode!
