My name is Lara. My parents got engaged during the intermission of Dr. Zhivago and named me after Julie Christie's character.
I am a dreamer, a maker, a creator, an idea girl, a mom. I have three beautiful (almost grown) children that I have spent the last 23 years with. They are my true loves.
I'm super independent and very stubborn, (so) I'm a single parent. I work a lot. If I'm not wearing pencil skirts, pearls and high heels- I'm in jeans and cowboy boots. I studied fashion design in college, got married and unmarried young. I've had everything and lost everything and you know what? The only things that matter are the people you love and the memories you make.
I am a really good quilter.
My best friends have been around for a long long time.
I can hold a mean grudge if you've lied to me or been unfair.
I am absolutely not perfect.
I love my family, real letters and road trips.
I had a great childhood.
Sometimes I get so tired that I just need to sleep on the beach for a week. I try to make time for that.
I love Hawaii, France, England, California, Washington, North Carolina and Utah.
This is a place for pieces of my story.
(I like knowing people can find me if they want to)
My ETSY shop is called DarlingGrayVintage.
