BIG NEWS! Announcing my newest evolution…

I believe the journey home to ourselves is continuous. It’s not a one and done. And every new season of our lives requires a new version of us to bloom. Because I lead my business from my heart, it means my business is continuously evolving alongside me.

I hope the sun is shining wherever you are and that your soul is happy!

Recently I was reminiscing about my journey. It’s crazy to think that 10 years ago I was experiencing my Saturn Returns (aka quarter life crisis). It seems like a lifetime ago.

My Saturn Returns turned my world upside down. I ended up walking away from my career in Interior Design, a career I had spent almost a decade building, and going off on a solo adventure in Bali so I could “find myself”.

It was one of the best decisions of my life. If you haven’t heard the full story, you can read about my journey here.

When I walked away from that life, I had no idea what was in store for me, I only knew the life I was living wasn’t the one I was meant to live.

Here I am almost 10 years later and I’m more me than I could have ever imagined being.

I believe the journey home to ourselves is continuous. It’s not a one and done. And every new season of our lives requires a new version of us to bloom.

I love meeting new versions of myself and can’t wait to see who I will become during the next 10 years!

Because I lead my business from my heart, it means my business is continuously evolving alongside me.

When I walked away from my career in the Interior Design industry I was heartbroken. I had high hopes for my career, and felt devastated when I accepted that it was no longer for me.

Ever since I was a little girl I’ve loved interior design. I collected Barbies, but not the dolls – the furniture! And I had it all – sofas, armoires, tables, bedding and even pillows. When I was “playing” Barbies it meant I was arranging the furniture and setting up the house.

Even though I walked away from my career in design, I’ve never been able to quite let it go. Throughout the years I’ve continued to freelance for other designers and take on my own clients here and there.

Looking back I can see that it wasn’t unhappiness in my career as an Interior Designer that I felt, but unhappiness within myself.

I can also see how elements of the design industry aren’t aligned with who I am and what I value. I could never get behind $40K sofas, $2,500 pillows, getting new furniture “just because” and adding the old to the landfills.

It made my soul cringe. ⁣Still does.

Here I am, a decade after the beginning of my Saturn Returns, and somehow it feels like I’ve gone full circle.

But I’m arriving here more me than I have ever been and firmly rooted in knowing who I am and what I stand for.

The next evolution of my business, as you may have guessed, is offering Interior Design services.

⁣My design services are my attempt at blazing my own way in the design world and honoring who I am as a spiritual, hippie, witchy woman who wears birkenstocks and no makeup, and who wants to create beautiful homes and sacred spaces for real people with real budgets. ⁣

There’s so much more I want to share and will over the upcoming weeks and months.

For now, you can read more about my design services here: Interior Wellness & Design.

And like always, I am so grateful to have you along for the journey. Thank you for standing with me as I continue to grow and evolve.
