the last 9 months of my life

Hey you! & thanks for reading my blog.  It's been almost a year since I last posted.  I'm so happy to be back!  When I wrote last September, my life was cRaZy!  I had just given up my old business in pursuit of my true passion.  Design, Creating, my love, my heart song.  All I wanted was to wash my slate clean and start over but I had so many doubts.  I am so glad that I didn't let them get me down. Note: When you're in the flow with your truest self, your purest joy, the waters have a way of magically parting and carving you out a new path.  Hallelujah!

Last you heard from me I was living in NY and nowwwww I am living in the country in Western Massachusetts & I LOVE it here!  I love it in a way I never ever imagined myself loving it.  I am where I am supposed to be and every cell in my body knows it.  I have yet to decide if it's because of the physical location change or the fearless leap I made into my new design business and souls calling that's got me feeling this way.  I think it's a little bit of both.

Here's the quick and beautifully serendipitous story.

About 4 years ago my husband and I came here for a visit, fell in love with this Little House on the Prairie style school for our daughter, but there was just no way my husband would ever be able to find a chef job here that would be in alignment with his style & soul....and that fulfillment is a #1 priority for us.  We gave up the dream, but still held the fantasy in our minds.  Cut to 4 years later.  We come back as a family to visit our friends from NY who bought a solar powered home in a new community,  just 1 town over from the school we fell in love with years earlier.  We fell in love, again.  We started hard core fantasizing about having a solar home of our own, sending our daughter to the school, me having a studio to create my art, build things and all we needed was a kick ass job for my husband.  Cut to, 1 month later, late night, craigslist.  I see a job posting 100% in alignment with who my husband is, farm to table, delicious, simple yet sexy food.  Next day, husband called.  Cut to- Husband, HIRED.  Can we say co-manifesting the life of our dreams!!!  AmEn!

I am grateful for this opportunity in a way that makes my soul buzz.  I feel lit up.  I feel on fire.  I feel 100% in alignment with me.  For the last 9 months I have done nothing but love my family, myself and CrEaTe.  CREATE.  CREATE.  I have been creating since I was born, it's in my blood, hard core, it's been all around me forever...yet for some reason a few years ago I just stopped.  I've never felt so out of poor family having to deal with me that whole time.  :)  Unconditional love, thank you.

I know no other high so pure than that of when I am creating.  I told myself, how can I possibly go wrong if I just simply allow myself to BE who I am.  I am here to learn, grow and share who I am.  Sharing me means, creating things, making rooms pretty and people happy in the process.  Everything I make has the intention of bringing a little sunshine to peoples lives.  I am a happy, passionate, headboard, rug, bed frame, pillow, desk, table, bookshelf makin' fool and proud of it!  This is just a little taste of what I've been up to.  There is so much more to come!  Thank you for being a part of my journey!
