Know My Knoxville

Favorite thing about Knoxville? Love the small town feel and being so close to the lakes and mountains. Couldn’t ask for better weather!

What part of town do you live in? West Knoxville, Lovell Road area.

Why did you choose that part of town? We chose our house based upon the land that came with it and its convenience to everything.

What makes it special? It is an old farm house that we have added on to for our four kids. I love that there is always a DIY project around the house!

How long have you lived in Knoxville? I am originally from Michigan, but have lived in East Tennessee for 31 years…it is home. 

Quick Bits

Favorite super hero… I would say Cat Woman- but she is a villainess…..

Favorite actor/actress…. Cameron Diaz or Reese Witherspoon

Favorite TV show….  The Voice and Criminal Minds

Favorite movie…  The Notebook & The Wedding Date

Favorite vacation… Jamaica

Favorite sports team… UT Vols

Favorite time of day (and why)… Evening because of time with my family.

Best advice you’ve ever been given… To worry about the things that you have control over. To make the best out of any situation and learn from it.

How do you spend your free time…. I love to be doing something creative in my free time, whether it is sewing, scrapbooking, or chalk art. I also love to garden or work outdoors when it is nice out.
