I love to write- I am a former journalism major/English minor, so writing has always been therapeutic and a way for me to share my feelings. At times in my life- especially when I was younger- it was much easier for me to express my feelings on paper than face to face.
It seems when my life speeds up, my blogging/journaling is one thing that is pushed aside. That and my upkeep- ha!
You didn’t hear from me much this summer, but I am back on track. We have lots going on at DWI that’s keeping us busy and I am most grateful for it these days.
Lots of fun, new projects in the mix I am excited to share soon, a few magazine features out in the next few months, new additions to our team, and some exciting opportunities that have come along for our firm.
Not to mention my college girl was home this summer, so to have my entire family under one roof again, was such a special treat.
Yet, out of all that is going on, one of the things I am most excited about is signing a lease on a new office space. It is in the heart of Mountain Brook Village in Birmingham, AL.
I have resisted moving my office out of my house in recent years because I wanted to be close by for my girls. Now they are older and my business has grown to include other designers and projects across the country, it’s time to move my firm into its own space.
As my designer friend, Kriste Michelini, once told me, sometimes you have to put a plant in a bigger pot for it to grow.
Let’s hope this plant grows like crazy as I am excited to see what the future holds.
I love Birmingham, and particularly my home of Mountain Brook, so it seemed the most logical and perfect fit when this opportunity presented itself.
Stay tuned as I share more on the progress of my new space. The proposed outside passed Design Review a few weeks ago and I am still working on what minor changes I want to make to the interior. With all that has been going on, including my mother who has been very sick this summer, I am not going to stress over hurrying into the space.
Here’s to blooming where each of us is planted-
