about kristin: I’m a marketing professional by day that takes too many pictures, can’t cook, & wishes life came with a soundtrack! It wasn’t until planning my own wedding that my true passion in design took off. Living in the mountains of Colorado provides inspiration every day and what I enjoy most is sipping on a glass of wine outside in the brisk mountain air with my husband and fur-kids.
what does loah mean…? When I decided to pursue my passion of design I thought I’d simply name the business after me – it’s easy, it’s simple and it made sense. After some more time to think I really wanted it to mean something and have a story to tell.
Sitting on our porch basking in the warm summer air I heard a little hum and there they were – two breathtaking hummingbirds coming to sip out of our wildflowers.
Growing up in the midwest we never had hummingbirds or maybe I just never looked hard enough. What I do remember from my childhood was my grandmother’s love of hummingbirds. Not only did they visit her well-kept garden, but she also had about every piece of decor in hummingbird – porcelain, plates, prints, you name it!
Shortly after she passed I read about a poem about the legends of a hummingbird. It stated that the hummingbirds “float free of time, carrying our hopes for love, joy and celebration…remind us that life is rich, beauty is everywhere, every personal connection has meaning and that laughter is life’s sweetest creation.” The poem was meaningful and touched my heart and that’s when I knew I had my own story to tell – so began Loah Design.
