About Me Pursuit of Pink


I'm excited to have you here, I'm sure we will be fast friends! A bit about me:
I love the color pink, though quite often my wardrobe choices involve more black and grey. But I love to find other ways to add pink to my life. I'm a girly girl who loves clothes and a good deal and I frequently combine the two. I’m married to the most amazing man I know, I call him Tolar. He’s super supportive and tells me I’m beautiful all the time; everyone should have one just like him. We have two children, one girl and one boy, who are the center of our world. In my spare time I love to read and practice photography (I take all of the photos for this blog myself!), although these days spare time doesn't come around often. Even with children in the house, I'm quite the neat freak and I love organization. I actually can't relax until my house is clean. Tolar thinks I like to clean, but I really just love the end result.

I am a Southern girl, having only lived in Virginia and North Carolina. In my mid-twenties I moved to the Northern Virginia/DC area and it was such a good decision for this city girl at heart. There I worked as the Publicist for the Shakespeare Theatre Company, what I considered my dream job. A couple years after living in DC, I met Tolar. We have since moved to Southwest Virginia where we built a house and are raising our children. I miss the city life, but I'm very content with the community we have created. I'm a theatre lover and I am extremely lucky that it is still a part of my career. In addition to running Pursuit of Pink and my social channels, I also work part time for a local theatre. A few other loves of mine: tart frozen yogurt, pretty things, a morning cup of coffee, makeup and jewelry.


  1. Linds- love your site! That is awesome that you are stepping out into the blogosphere! I could use some more Lindsay in my life....I agree with you that we need some more of the South here, Tolar and DC Metro are wonderful, and tart frozen yogurt is absolutely delicious! I am excited to hang out soon sweet girl...
