I’ve dabbled in various endeavors… a storefront I impulsively signed the lease for only to realize I felt trapped; I’ve spent countless hours inhaling paint fumes to give love to old, worn furniture; I continue to help women update their wardrobes with stylish pieces and I even started writing a book I hope to finish one day… Needless to say, I was always a curious child, or as my mom would rather describe it, undeniably stubborn. That curiosity has followed me well into adulthood- a trait I find far less threatening than others, I suppose. Truth be told, I’m not entirely sure how else to determine what is the right fit, and so I continue to explore and stay curious. I imagine that it doesn’t come down to just one right answer, but rather a compilation of stories along the way.

In the past year in a half, I’ve learned that when you least expect it, life intervenes and calls for a restart. It does not ask, nor give any forewarning- it simply happens. And so here I am, at a cliche crossroads; inching closer to 30, with a life that looks very different than the one I had imagined a few years back. I’ve come to realize that the same questions keep making an appearance- begging to be answered. Perhaps a marriage needed to fail in order for me to take these next steps; follow my dreams without taking anyone else into consideration. I’m seeking answers and trusting in the journey along the way. Know that big changes are coming, I say that more so to myself, but also to all of you, my loyal readers, which I am truly grateful for. Thank you.
