I know that my posts over the last 8 or 9 months have come much farther apart than before, and that I haven't used this space as well as I once did. I've been in a season where this blog had to take a small step back, to make room for other things. And I've been ok with that and allowing myself space to try to learn to do some of the things, instead of trying to do all of the things. However, I've missed this space and it's connection, process, and expression. Writing is so good for me (and I hope this public form is at least somewhat good for others from time to time! If only to connect with each of you it's worth it), so I've decided to try to move back into communicating regularly again.
The last year has been one of settling in and finding some sort of rhythm for me and my little family. Jane has finally started staying with a friend a few days a week (who is absolutely the most amazing person, and a perfect fit for Jane) which means that I've moved into working a more solid part time schedule. If you were familiar with jes + em, we decided at the beginning of the year that due to some life changes it was time to close our doors and move on to other things. The year of working with Jessica was absolutely amazing and pushed me in so many good ways to become a better person and business owner. If you're wondering, we're still great friends, and I get to stand with her on her wedding day in a few months (!!!!). Get ready for ALL the pictures.
I'm working now as a free lance creative director, stylist and design consultant (along with some modeling), which has been amazing, but of course, hard. Being a mother as an entrepreneur is uncharted road for me, and it's certainly been a process of victories and defeats with a lot of doubt. However, each day makes me more confident that I've made the right choice for both of us, at least for right now.
I hope that this space can lend its self to more connection with each of you in the future. Please feel free to comment with your thoughts, questions, or just to say hi. Or drop me a line at the email listed on my contact page. Also, feel free to let me know if there's anything you would rather me blog on. This space has morphed several times in it's lifetime, and while I feel like it has solidly landed on a point based in lifestyle, I would love your input! I'll also be starting a once a month image deconstruction post detailing one image from my instagram that month, why I chose it (including surrounding image frames) and what my editing process looked like, so keep an eye out for that!
