where is she?

Maybe you’ve noticed, but I’ve been away for a while.  In fact, this is the longest I have gone without posting to my blog.

Just so you know, I haven’t given this up…I still love writing about architecture, interior design and the like.  Writing gives me the opportunity to think – which I am finding more and more difficult to find the time to do!

What have I been up to?  Well…some of everything – and I am thrilled to report that they all related to my passions!  On the business front, I have had a few interesting clients/projects come my way.  I am also the lead instructor for an awesome non-profit organization geared towards high school students interested in architecture, design & construction (ACCI).  In the middle of this (and to my great surprise) I was honored to receive the Best of Houzz banner for 2014.  For me, and most importantly, I am finally committed to taking the ARE (Architect Registration Exam) with my first exam coming up in April.

I wasn’t sure of what would happen when I left my full-time job last May.  I wasn’t sure if I would have work or how fast things would happen, etc.  There is a bit of fear and anxiety that accompanies a decision like that – but I do feel that this will actually happen.  Am I tired? yes!  Do I feel crazy? Yes!  But I am LOVING every minute of it and do not regret following my heart. (I should note that I am blessed to have a spouse who is in support of my wanting to build a design business).

Thank you for your patience and I will begin posting regularly soon…
