About "Love You, St. John!"
Everyone who knows me, knows just how much I LOVE my home, St. John. It wouldn’t be wrong to say that I’m obsessed. Since I am not able to live there now, I’ve surrounded myself with all things St. John – I wear a St. John necklace and bracelet, the theme in my house is beach, my garden has conch shells, my favorite color is turquoise because of the ocean. If you’re thinking about my poor husband who’s surrounded by all these shells, I have the same thoughts, too. Ha!
When I created the photo book, One Month Later, and saw the overwhelming response to it, light bulbs went off. I realized this would be a good way for me to give back to St. John and help with the recovery efforts. That idea soon blossomed into a larger idea to create a business where giving back to the island is central to the business plan.
When coming up with a name, “Love You, St. John!” immediately came to my mind. It captures exactly how I feel towards my home and it drives my desire to give back.
The book serves as a stepping stone to help me to grow the idea and new venture. I am coming down to the island in August to meet with local charities and officials to determine the island’s needs. I’ll also be collecting content for our new, expanded website. You can follow my progress on my blog. Wish me luck! Thanks for your support!
