Life With A Dash Of Whimsy

My name is Katie del Castillo Vail and I'm a West Point grad, a Captain in the Army Reserve. Despite my job in the Army (and the camo that goes along with it), I have a passion for all things pretty, whether it's a beautiful dress, an amazing sofa or a breathtaking sunset. I love to entertain, run marathons, thrift, cook, and travel, and wish I could spend my life at the beach. I believe that everything in life should have a little pizzazz, and that a dash of whimsy is the key to a life well lived and enjoyed.
