Happy Holidays & Some Personal Musings….

I’m writing this post curled up on my sofa with my dog, in my jammies, in front of my perfectly lovely, absolutely imperfect & non-blog worthy, sparkly Christmas tree.  It’s one of those peaceful, soft moments.

It feels almost weird to be writing – I haven’t been here in so long – but for (at least) the last 5 months I’ve been re-prioritzing.    A Life Re-Alignment, you could say.

Here I am

One of the greatest double edged swords of being a grown up is that YOU are entirely responsible for your own Happiness.  So I stopped ‘Musing’ aloud, but I was thinking…..

I don’t want to be a Blogger – I am already completely captivated by what I do, and so fascinated by the process of every project, I don’t want another job…I want to share client projects and  renovations, and hopefully you’re as enthralled as I am about how it all comes together.  I’ll share some DIY projects that are somehow unique or original – the DIY Blog world is crazy with project repetition and duplication….SO, the ‘Musings’ will still be happening, they will just be random, happy surprises when they arrive.

Follow your Heart

Bigger Change – My house is for sale…. yes, after all these projects, I’m selling it, lol.  This house was part of a specific time and journey in my life that is over, and though it was a sad decision, I am really excited about buying a smaller, more rural house, the new projects, and the start of a new story for me.  So you’ll see those changes in the upcoming Musings too…

And last, but absolutely the most important,  life is too short to be anything but happy.  It doesn’t matter how cliché and unoriginal it sounds, it’s truth.  Make the time to do and say what matters, laugh, kiss and hug a lot, and surround yourself with people who genuinely cherish you.  Find your full on, down deep HAPPY.  It really isn’t cliché….and more kissing and hugging can’t be a bad thing.

So there’s a few of my Deep Thoughts and recent Life Changes, and why there’s been no Musings…and I’m telling you all this because it’s incredible that I’ve received emails asking when I’ll post again, or that you’ve found my blog and been inspired by one of my projects.  I mean, my mom has to send those emails to me, but no one else does.  So, it’s really, really nice that you do.

Life is Good

I hope life is good for you, and I hope we hang out in 2014 – I have a few stunning (and very special) room transformations to share with you.

I wish you a beautiful and special holiday season, and I hope 2014 surprises you in happy ways.

If you’re planning to re-decorate, re-design, or renovate, I can help you create the extraordinary. Fall in love with your home again.

  1. YOu go girl!!!! You are wise beyond your years. It took me far longer to find my bliss. I worked for Corporate America for 30 years (the last beint Enron) to save for my retirement. When I left Enron I vowed never to work for Corporate Ameriaca again too much greed and coruption. I started Tea Parties To Go and I give parties for little girls. I have been in business for 10 years. I love my job, but the majority of my retirement fund is gone. So the reason for working at a job I hated was for nil! it’s all good tho. I am happy, love little girls and love to entertain so I am following my bliss. I have learned so much about what is important. So I applaud you for your decision. God Bless you and Merry Christmas!!

  2. Good for you! I think everyone needs to take some time and re-prioritize / reorganize things to just have some rest.
