My name's Taylor! I'm a lawyer with a passion for life + style/design. I live in Round Rock, Texas with my husband and two fur babies. We met while in a dual-graduate degree program where we both received our J.D./M.B.A. and now run a law firm, Fergus & Tomanka, PLLC, together.
the Extra Blog
The Extra is a business, home + lifestyle platform built to empower + inspire women to live life boldly, out loud + in color in business, at home, and in life. We are building a community of like-minded women who want to do the same and hope you join us!
The Extra Blog was started because of Mean Girls who let me know how "much" I was, how colorful I dressed, how loud I was - just how "Extra" I am all the time.
And honestly WHAT'S WRONG with being a little Extra?!
After that experience, I wanted a way to get likeminded women together to support + empower other women to just FULLY be themselves all the time - the way they are in private with just their family. So, I reclaimed the word "Extra" and made it the name of my blog.
Here at the Extra blog, we believe that every woman should be met where she's at AND celebrated for who she is (her Extra-ness if you will!)!
If you want to stay at home and take care of your 2.5 kids -- GIRL, get it! If you want to work a 90 hour work weeks and come home to nothing but a glass (or two) of nice wine - YOU GO GLENN COCO (sorry not sorry this reference ages me).
However the HELL you want to show up in life - do it.
This is your space + your community, girlfriend.
This is where you belong.
Welcome! I'm so glad you're here.
