Stylish Blogger Award and 7 Things

Many Thanks to Tiffany over at Savor Home for giving me the "Stylish Blogger Award." I  recently attended a dinner party for the "Taste Makers of Atlanta." One of the prerequisites for entry was that you weren't constantly self promoting (true story). I hope these 7 things allow you to get to know me better and doesn't fall in the self-promoting "Look what I've done" category. 

  OK. My Name is Kimberly Ward.
circa 1992
 {1}I am from Oxford Mississippi.  Here I am with some of my high school friends. Mississippi is a cool place. Oxford was recently named the cultural capital of the south. Did I mention that it's a very stylish place to grow up.  In 2003 WWD named Ole Miss one of the top 10 most fashionable colleges in the nation.  Have you been to Oxford on game day? Glamorous!

Not only can you find high-end fashion on the town's square (We're talking Gucci and Chanel), there's also bingo at church and Friday night football.  {2} I'm from a huge family.  
Oregon Rally Obama campaign 2008
Like this Obama rally huge. (Just Kidding)  We're a social Bunch. My oldest sister was one of the first African-American homecoming queens at our high school way back when.  Since then we've been involved in everything from cheerleading to sororities.   As long as there's some sweet tea and a reason to get dressed, there's a Ward in the midst.

I got my {3}love of linens from my mother. There's nothing better than great sheets and towels. I got my love of the home from my grandmothers who taught me everything from soap making to sewing.  
I  was destined to be an interior designer. In Home Economics,( yes, I said home economics)  I would make these fancy monogrammed pillow cases.
I wish that I still had them.
I now spend my days in pursuit of the good life. {4}I own a boutique design firm that specializes in high-end residential projects.  Not quite million dollar yet, but enough for me to wake up everyday and do the things that I want to do. I'm sure someone out there can decorate an entire house on a dime, I'm just not one of them.
Speaking of the good life. I have a daughter.{5}
Here she is at a furniture store. I take her everywhere with me. I just got her a passport so she can travel with me to Europe and Africa this summer. Her first outing was at 3 months to a Rachel Roy fashion show at Neiman Marcus. She's been hanging every since. She's the inspiration behind my newest project.
I love books, art and photography.  {6} I have read 1 non fiction book every month for the last 7 years. I now consider amongst my friends and advisers, Cathy Black, Steven Covey, John C. Maxwell, David Bach, Christine Comaford,  Zig Ziggler and Lois P. Frankel.

Finally, and this is kind of random, but I L.O.V.E - LOVE a well dressed man. The more custom the clothes, the better. If I'm at a hip-hop club with the the music banging  and guys in saggy jeans and I noticing a guy leaning in to order his drink wearing a Hugo Boss suit, he's who I'm spending the evening with.  
In appreciation, I'd like to recommend  Beth over at Mychicmyway, Manvi Hidalgo, over at Mochatini and the forever fashionable Joy Moyer of Haute-Zone for a stylish blogger award.
