Lisa Bull longs to be a homebody. She and her husband, singer-songwriter Chris Donohoe, co-own The Dram and Boxwood Tap & Grill, and her work hours are a flurry of activity. So it’s no surprise that the Texas-born mother, model, and aspiring graphic designer spends her days off hunkered down. “I’ve always been a bit of a nester. I have a huge stack of shelter magazines like Martha Stewart Living, Elle Decor, and D Home waiting to be perused. Sophia and I also love to make things together. We definitely have the crafting bug. But once Sophia is in bed, Chris and I make a beeline for the couch to talk and maybe watch a bit of TV. Our jobs are very social, so I like to keep our weeknights nice and chill. We love to just hang out together.”
