I started this blog in 2013, about a year after having my first child as an outlet for creativity with hopes it would launch into something full-time; however, my main gig is still in non-profit finance. As a working mother and wife trying my best to fit everything in, naturally somethings fall by the wayside. I tried so hard to fit blogging into my daily routine and would beat myself up every time I couldn’t get a post out fast enough, when the ideas weren’t flowing or when I didn’t have the “perfect” story to share. So the posts got pushed to every other day, then once a week, then once every month if I was lucky.
Then I had baby number 2 and needless to say, my focus was scattered. It’s been over a year since my last post; during my hiatus, I explored ways to transition careers and find work in the design field.
I think about design all the time. Whether it be rearranging our apartment a hundred times, watching various design shows on HGTV, or even flipping through my monthly issues of House Beautiful, to now reestablishing this blog; design is part of the fabric of my life.
Here are a few spaces to be inspired by:
