Wife to Papa Suga, Reginald, Mom to 8, Nomi (grandma) to 6! She didn’t think her job was done. A former educator who decided that diving into one of my favorite past times was a great way to escape the pandemic.
Like many of you, she was quarantined to the island of home, so Tara decided to enjoy her patio space a little more than she had time to before. Tara and her husband recently purchased their forever home which yields over 9 acres, a porch, 2 patios, and an enlarged fire pit area. Being a mom slowed her down from being able to decorate these spaces like she wanted. Since the pandemic made everything abruptly stop, she thought it was time to decorate. While looking for inspiration, she couldn’t seem to find girls that looked like her in the outdoor living spaces. Then the words of her mom came to memory, “If you can’t find what you are looking for, create it”. So that is what she did! She created the group Black Women Who Love Outdoor Living Spaces and the outside living lifestyle brand The Patio Chic!
Tara has always been a creative and an out of the box thinker. This movement has definitely made her proud!
