In 2011, I was feeling intimidated by an internal question… What am I going to do with my life?
As someone who was always drawn to pretty interiors, organization, and had a propensity for knowing how to style items and vignettes, on a whim I thought – Why not interior design?
Inspired by my Gramma, who loved to decorate and create special little moments around her small spaces, I embarked on a career path that would open my eyes in ways that I didn’t quite understand. Although I was a little bit of a late bloomer, I went to school, completed, and was turned out into the workforce where things would be hard for a while.
The life of an entry-level interior designer can be a struggling one, filled with many ups and downs in the job market and lots of learning experiences. Blogging kept me feeling inspired and motivated when I was perhaps doing jobs that made me feel a little less so. We moved in with my in-laws in order to save for a house, and in November of 2016, it happened!
Shortly thereafter, I became an interior designer with a local company, and not a day goes by that I don’t think – man, I sure am glad that I didn’t give up on this.
I’m married to a wonderful man, fur-mom to our Shiba Inu, Kuma, interior designer by day, blogger of whatever is inspiring me by night. And I’m so glad you’re here. Welcome!
