A place where design, fun finds and family collide

My word of 2012

I’m participating in the word of the year link up party over on The Lettered Cottage.  What you do is pick a word that you want to reflect on throughout the year in any situation you are in.  It can be anything…and for me this year my word is going to be LOVE.  Pretty unoriginal, right?  But I think for me this year it is going to mean so much more then what you expect from LOVE.  I have taken on a new adventure (this site, my business) and am giving so much love to it: my designs, my advice, my ideas.  Anyone who has a similiar job knows that it takes a lot of love to create something each and everyday.  I’m finding that this year is going to bring a real balance of love.  Being able to give all my love to my children and husband, but hold enough back to be able to love myself and my dream of being a successful interior designer.  When you take on a business of your own you really feel the pressure to succeed and sometimes that means turning a movie on for the kids and getting something designed.  Is this bad?  I don’t think so, but there are those days that I look at them and think…should I walk away from the computer and play or finish what I have started and then play?  It’s a back and forth battle and I know it is because of the love I have for both.  So this year, in each moment I am going to reflect on love and know that in each moment I am loving one thing and then can return to the other and continue loving that.

    I wouldn't worry too much about it being unoriginal…where would we be without love? 🙂
