Hi there! I’m Tara, writer of Lace and Grace! Welcome! I currently live in Frederick, MD and love it here! I am a lover of all the good things in life. Lace and Grace is a lifestyle blog-featuring recipes, restaurant reviews, travel experiences, wedding tips, home decor and much more. It is kind of my public diary documenting my life.

I graduated from Virginia Tech in 2010 with degrees in Marketing and Management Entrepreneurship, Innovation & Technology. I will always cherish those amazing 4 years I spent in Blacksburg, VA.

After college I headed off into the real world. After feeling the lack of creativity in my everyday job; and the fact that I could not cook whatsoever, I decided to start Lace and Grace back in early 2011.

In May 2014, I married my best friend and built our first home together with our furry four legged child- Cha Cha.  In 2015, I received my MBA degree at Mt. St. Mary’s University as well as added another furry friend to our family, Hoover the German Shepherd (mix) puppy.

2017 I am focusing on traveling to new places and eating some delicious foods along the way!
