dreaming of…

the perfect bike ride.

This weekend Adam and I are celebrating our 2 year wedding anniversary – it feels like just yesterday we were sobbing our eyes out like babies in front of our friends and family : ) We have made a pact that every year around August 30th we will head back to Colorado and stay at the armstrong hotelwhere we spent our first afternoon/night together as an old married couple. I’m so excited to be back this weekend and SO pumped for our bike ride.

On our honeymoon we took the most amazing bike ride around Paris for an entire day (we ate croissants until our tummies hurt, laughed like crazy, were drenched with rain, and rode until our legs ached – it was the BEST day I’ve ever had in my entire life) and lucky enough for us the Armstrong rents out bikes that are crazy similar to the ones we rode in Paris! I’m so so so so excited to celebrate my love for Adam with a bike ride!!!

dreaming of…

a clean office.

After a whirlwind of a week finalizing design details for Ann and Jon’s wedding this past Friday (TOTAL success by the way…pics to come soon!) my house is…well…anything but clean. It literally looks like a bomb of crafting supplies, paper snippets and antique things exploded all over my office, which is a Bummer with a capital B. Cause, guess what? I hate cleaning!

BUT BUT BUT I’m actually a tad bit excited to channel Mr. Clean because I’m revving up for another week of creating and crafting for….Sarah’s baby shower! Yep, this next weekend I’m hosting a baby shower along with my Mama for my little sis’ first baby…and I’m SUPER excited about it! I’ll be leaving on Thursday for Colorado and unfortunately, I’m a little behind in the design process, so I will be knee deep once again in crafts for the next few days. Can’t wait to celebrate Sarah and the baby bump!

dreaming of:

next steps and certainty.

For the past couple of weeks I’ve had those fleeting moments of uncertainty. The ones where you wonder whether or not every twist and turn you’ve made thus far, has led you to exactly where you ought to be.

Would a left turn instead of a right still have led me to exactly where I stand today??? 

 For many weeks my mind has toyed with me as I continue opening doors to this new chapter of which I’ve created for myself. Some of the doors I open are refreshing and exhilarating. Others are quite frightening, and I leap to slam them shut as quickly as I opened them. Owning my own business is one of the hardest endeavors I’ve ever set out to accomplish, and I’m predicting that the hard has just gotten started. In these early stages I’ve had many moments where I wish my feet would just take those next steps without the need for my mind to offer direction or help.

But, today I’m on a jet plane. To L.A. On a mission to find some of those next steps. To make new friends, hear other entrepreneurial stories and learn new tricks. I’m hopeful that coordinator confab will lend me some certainty that this path, and these doors that I’ve opened, and stepped through are indeed the right ones for me. I have a BIG piece of my heart in love with weddings, and I have all the hope in the world that this journey in the wedding industry will be a long and fruitful one.

So for the next couple of days I’ll be a tad MIA from the good ol’ blog while I take a few of my next steps. I’ll be back in full swing on Thursday to share all about my L.A. adventures : )
