I had a huge list of things to do before I moved that included putting a new roof on my house & finishing renos, finding renters, preparing my online Sewing Class (coming in August) and all the things that come with moving away... so when we made the decision, it was kinda a relief b/c those deadlines didn't feel so urgent. I've felt really excited to plant my feet again now that I know this is home and I've been hunting for my dream thrift items (lol, priorities) :) Yesterday I found this atomic green kitchen table (for $3!!!!) and I set up my dining room/studio... and since I donated over 15 garbage bags of stuff in prep for my move, I feel guilt free buying new pretty things :) I'm starting to feel really proud of my house and it's so exciting :) It's just me and Lola here for the first time so I'm building our home & I even bought a plant!
Today is Canada Day and I'm feeling especially sentimental :) The best thing that came out of this big decision was that from March to June, I thought I was moving away and I spent way more time with my friends and family than usual. I've been a workaholic for the last 4 years and through these last few months, I realized works not everything (but I still totally love it). It was a really amazing realization for me and I appreciate my family and friends so much more now! As I settle back into Freckled Nest as my career, I'm working very hard to keep a good balance of a work life AND a life life!
It's exciting to make new plans for Freckled Nest and reassess my companies vision and purpose. Ultimately, my heart is for women and girls to discover and realize their beauty. I'm still thinking it all through but I've got some ideas that feel really special and promising :)
