A Long Time Ago...

More like two and a half years ago, I started this blog as a way to share my passion of interior design with the world. It became a place to connect with others who share my obsession, and a true outlet for my creative juices that had been flowing with nowhere to go. During this time, I took many classes on the subject and ended up with a certificate in interior design, which helped me feel like my life was going in the direction it was always meant to go. I was so happy to share this journey with you all.

While I had hoped to start my own design business, I ended up accepting a job as a designer with a national furniture store. Aside from some stress and tough hours, I have been loving the experience. One unfortunate outcome, however, has been the lack of inspiration to keep up with this blog. I am already exercising my design muscles all day, making me feel like when I get home, I am ready to focus on something else. Don't get me wrong, I still love reading blogs and design books and magazines, but just feel less motivated to post my own ideas. It doesn't help that I am not allowed to share my projects at work (I so wish I could!) and the fact that I took a big pay cut to follow my dreams - which means my home projects have nearly come to a halt.

I realize this post is sounding as though I am giving up on the blog. Truth is, the thought of that makes me sad, and I am not ready to let it go. What it does mean, however, is that maybe it is time to expand my topics to other subjects I have been interested in lately, such as cooking and fashion. I will still post mostly on design, but just not feel limited to it, which I hope will motivate me again. How does that sound? Posting will probably continue to be a bit sporadic until I really figure out the direction I want to go in, but I hope you will enjoy following me in this progression in my life.

I so appreciate all of you who have been reading and commenting for the last couple of years. You always brighten my day. Happy 2012 everyone!!

I just found your blog and am your newest follower. I hope you do continue to post, you have such beautiful images.
Blogging itself definitely feels like a job some days, and I highly recommend breaks of whatever length needed. I look forward to seeing what you do!
