Appreciates the Little Things (with Her Big Heart). Born and raised in the Carolinas on home-cooked meals, Christian principles, and lots of hugs. Loves giggling, good times and has a gift for gab (yakety yak!). Started this business while in college (good thing she majored in Business). A sentimentalist who cherishes her grandmother’s cooking utensils. Also loves lavender, succulent gardens, and shopping at Anthropologie. Hates glitter; it goes against her neat-freak tendencies.

Fiercely devoted to family and friends. Ever the cool aunt, Millie loves to ham it up with her five fab nieces and nephews. She’s also a soon-to-be adoptive mother and protective foster mama to two sweet kids. In the past few years, Millie fostered six others, too. Ask to hear the story of Little Wren. And isn’t it the bees knees that history is repeating itself? Millie and Amanda now both have daughters who are besties too. Then there’s Ford, who just learned to motor around the house at full speed! Always zooming around herself, Millie never rests on her laurels. Her current big plans are architectural – building a homestead for her growing family and foster care mission.
