Thank you. Thank you very much.

I have to say – I can’t believe that over a year of not posting, I’m still getting comments from y’all! I am so incredibly humbled, and I can’t tell you how much it means to me.

Here’s an update on me. I started a new job over a year ago, and I’ve been giving it 100-kajillion % because it’s been a new direction for me in my “real life career” and I’ve really, really wanted to do well.

A year later, I’m finally feeling like I have my feet under me, and I’ve been thinking more and more about how much I miss having this creative outlet in my life. Design makes me happy. It makes me giddy. It adrenalizes me and excites me. I love just hunting for beautiful photos, and analyzing what they did in a particular room that makes it “sing”. My Pinterest boards are a testament to this passion. 

I miss it. And I miss you.

I’ve also been thinking for a long time now that I really want to talk about our collective journey to being happier, healthier, freeer (free-er? more free?) women. In fact I actually toyed with the idea of creating a new blog just devoted to cleansing the junk from our mental and emotional lives….but 2 blogs is way too much to handle right now, and I just can’t quit my passion for design.

So, stay posted my suburban friends. More to come….

I was just cleaning out my RSS feeds today and considered deleting yours, but I decided that I wanted to make sure I would know if you ever posted again, so I kept it and here you are!

Okay, totally weird. For some reason I was thinking of you and thought I'd Google to see if your blog was still up and running and sure enough you just happened to have posted after a year of absence. Crazy timing! Glad to hear you're doing well.

I just came across your blog via Pinterest the other night. We just moved into a home that could easily become our forever home...but I didn't realize just how much it screams 1990 until we moved in. Now, everywhere I look, I find more work (and expense). Your blog was just the breath of fresh air I needed. Now, off to buy some ORB spraypaint and decide if I truly am brave enough to paint formica countertops....!
