Hi, I’m Krista.
Hello there friends my name is Krista and I am a life long Seattlite. I grew up in a family where holidays and special occasions were a big deal with good food on the table, beautiful handmade decorations about the house, and live music coming from the living room. I caught the “party planning bug” from my mom. My first event I ever planned was a Halloween party in the 4th grade where I invited the entire class. I spent weeks cleaning out the old garage of my Mom’s 1920’s home to create the spookiest haunted house in town. My childhood friends still remembered it when we were at our 10 year high school reunion!
Just in case you were wondering…
The name Kita came from my baby cousin, who 20 years ago could not say Krista…I wear that nickname proudly!
I may have a borderline addiction to peanut butter. So if you see me in the kitchen with a spoonful of peanut butter… just walk away slowly!
I love to dance and have been known to cut a rug at the most unexpected moments!
I met Robin Williams in “Old Portland”.
I have never been able to wink an eye or raise an eyebrow and it make me truly jealous!
My favorite anonymous quote is “Love life and life will love you back!”
