I’m Molly Niles Renshaw. I know that’s a mouthful but I couldn’t bear getting rid of the name I had for 37 years yet I wanted to share a name with my husband and kids.

I grew up in a big family in the San Fernando Valley in Los Angeles. I went to an all-girl school and still have my best friends from there. I graduated from Skidmore College inSaratoga Sprin

gs as a dance major. After living in New York for fourteen years, I returned home to California where I met my husband, Alan and had my two children, Shepard and Philippa. We live in Venice Beach.

I strive to live the good life. I hate the word busy, but my life is FULL. I have two businesses, kids, pets and extracurricular activities. I like to keep my house tidy, ride my bike, cook from scratch and stay fit with yoga and Pilates.

My goal is to live a simple life surrounded by few but treasured possessions and find contentment through experiences not things. Love, true friendships, laughter, great food and wine, books, travel and art are most important to me. Get in touch anytime at molly@tarrylife.com and thank you so much for reading!
