Hi friends. Today, I'm writing from a tired, excited, overwhelmed place. I've been writing this blog for about 3 years now. It started out as an assignment for one of my Journalism classes in college and turned into a platform to share my favorite ideas, projects, as well as document my business from conception to where it is today. So, needless to say, it means a lot to me. I feel like my entire life has been documented on this blog. I spend a lot of time planning projects, executing them, working with other vendors to host giveaways and guest posts. Because I love it - not because my blog is my business. I don't make money off my blog. I get joy from doing it and reading your comments and hearing and learning from YOU as well!
With that being said, I'm in the process of moving my business into a beautiful studio (eeek!) shared with some fabulous wedding vendor ladies and I am on cloud 9. This is the space where I will be meeting with clients, holding consults, sharing table mockups, and possibly working on some DIY projects as well. With that said, I have my work cut out for me the next few months... So, if you enjoy this blog and get some inspiration and/or encouragement from it, let me know! Sometimes when life gets busy, it's nice to know someone is reading and all the time is well spent.
I'm incredibly excited about this new business venture and with many new phases in life, I'm trying to just enjoy this whole process and not get overwhelmed. I think it's so easy for people to get in the mindset of "well, next month everything will be awesome" or "I just want to be here in my business" and always have your head in the future of the hopeful or looking forward state. I just want to BE PRESENT. So what does this have to do with the blog? Well, I'd love to document this whole phase for me and my business... but I also want to keep my readers in mind as well. Based on my Google tracking, some of the highest read posts are my DIY and the few fashion posts (which I will have more of!) and lately, the wedding recaps and photos of my new inventory don't get much traffic. So I don't want to bore you people =)
I will be trying my best to be present in this crazy exciting process, and if you want to hear about the journey, leave me a comment and let me know! And if you've been in a similar situation, I'd love to hear how you have stayed present in the moment!
