I’m not someone who loves change. This my be even more true due to being pregnant! However, one week after we found out I was pregnant and were just trying to wrap our heads around that, we found out I was getting laid off. I didn’t see it coming and was feeling pretty overwhelmed as I went home to tell my husband. The main thing I remember from our conversation was him saying – we will figure it out. He’s pretty amazing. It was hard to lose the job. Especially one where I had worked for 9 years. But as my husband and I discussed a potential photography business (which we had talked about prior to everything), and my additional pursuit of the arts in other areas, I got excited. This was something I had always loved to do, but been scared to pursue full-time. It felt like I was being forced out of my comfort zone to do something I was passionate about. And so has begun a whirlwind of change. I’ve learned more about business plans and planning in the past few months than the rest of my life … and I’m loving it. I’ve had conversations with other business owners that have been incredibly helpful and interesting. I look forward to getting to my desk in the morning and working through each area on my list. I know that will not always be the case, but I am thankful for it now, and for the ability to pursue this, while the little bun is on the way. We don’t know where all this will lead, or how it will change, but we are doing our best to plan wisely and pursue fully. You never know unless you try. Live what you love!
I love chocolate and snow. Art supplies are my favorite gift. And cooking for my husband and soon-to-be little girl makes me happy. My art supplies of choice change depending on the day, but quilting and painting usually rank pretty high. I have an amazing husband and together we do family and lifestyle photography. It's a crazy, messy, imperfect, fun life!
