Anyone who knows me knows my undying (and very vocal) wish is to move to a small town near the water and live in a pretty house like this:
Insert my day job as a budget analyst— and you end up with someone in serious need of a creative outlet.
While discussing creative ideas with my mom, I remembered that I used to save my favorite magazine articles and pictures, organizing them by subject.
Re-discovering the binders full of my favorite makeup and fashion looks, places I longed to travel, houses I needed to live in, entertaining ideas, and recipes was like being re-introduced to the carefree woman I was several years ago–pre-child, pre-mortgage, pre-rat race.
So while I’m running this (rat?!) race, I’m more determined than ever to stop to smell the pretty blue roses on the way to where I want to be. Learning to enjoy the journey.
Although documenting my favorite recipes, fashion, home decor, and experiences will be lots of work, I know it will be fun and exciting. If nothing else, it will meet my type-A personality’s need to always be productive 🙂
