More than she Dreamed

I just love a good dream come true story.

Mary Lou Jackson had always dreamed of buying a house on Cape Cod, and each time she jogged through the River Street neighborhood in Yarmouth, MA she wanted one just a little bit more; then in 2006 she and her husband finally bought their home, and Mary Lou together with Designer Christine Walsh transformed it into a beachy summer retreat. But that of course is not all.

The project went so well that the two women teamed up to start a business called Cici & Lu Interiors, a coastal living design firm. She got so much more than she dreamed! And that is beautiful to me.
