New Beginnings...

I’ve come to a turning of the page in my life, one chapter ending and another one just beginning.  The change is exciting and it’s been good for my soul.  I’m happy to be heading in a new direction.  The summertime flew by with Husband and I moving into our first home, and Christmastime seemed to pass too quickly as well.  It feels like we've been living in this house for so long, yet everything is so unsettled.  I've been obsessed with making plans for our little nest lately, but in a good way.  I've been dreaming up artwork, making inspiration boards, and writing list after list.  I've been painting old furniture and Husband has been building new furniture.  We find ourselves making weekly trips to Lowe's having (probably too many) discussions about what we want to do in each room.  It's exciting for both of us.  Things seem really good right now.  Blogging reached a point in my life where it felt overwhelming and I just didn't have time for it.  I felt pressured to write and the aesthetic of the blog itself just never felt right.  I think it was due to a lack of vision on my part.  This time I have taken time to rediscover myself, my style, and even my writing.  

This new chapter I am starting has many new adventures.  This blog.  A homemaking journey.  And a new job.  I'm hoping this new job will open other doors for me.  It's ironic that I am in the field of financials, considering that as I am preparing to leave my current job three ladies have mentioned their surprise that I didn't seek out a career in fashion.  I have to admit that I sometimes wonder the same thing.  Getting dressed each morning is always a good part of my day, and I couldn't count the hours I have spent browsing racks of garments, taking in all the different colors, textures, and styles.  I never grow tired of it.  With all that in mind, I happened to think, God knows my path better than I do.  He knows where I should be headed and which choices I should make.  As long as I am following His will for my life, I must be where I am supposed to be.  Perhaps my job is what it is so that this blog can be my true passion.  Maybe I still need to learn things before embracing a career in something that I love.  All these things and more I am unsure of.  But I can rest easy now, knowing that it's o.k. to not have all the answers figured out just yet.

So this is my next chapter, and I do hope you'll read.
