I originally wrote this post back on Valentine's Day – February 2010 and left it in it's draft state. But really it's appropriate with the unveiling of the new design of the blog to post it now.
I've said my share of hello's and welcome's to various audiences over the years. It's hard to believe I've been blogging for years now…many of you followed my journey from when I lived in Las Vegas and B and I were dating, moved to TN, got married, Sweet Life Designs was born, then our little boy was born and….well, that's where our story is now.
My blog posts lately have been all over the place…but really, hey that's where I'm at personally and professionally right now. ALL OVER THE PLACE.
So I thought it might be time for you to see and hear the real me as it stands right now. This is a glimpse of a mom to a teething one year old who couldn't convince her toddler to go back to his own bed last night, a mom who got up anyway at 5:15 am to hit play on the Slim in Six DVD because she is fighting to get off as much as she can of this baby weight before a much needed vacation to Mexico. After kissing the (gorgeous) hubby goodbye, carts the little one off to daycare and she settles in for her 8-5 job as a marketing manager….usually lunchtime break consists of SLD client meetings and deliveries, press checks, etc and then back to the corporate grind. After the 5pm bell rings it's a whirlwind of daycare pick-up, figuring out dinner, keeping the dog from licking the sticky goldfish fingers from the highchair, splish splash baths, good night stories and a few snuggles with the hubby all before settling in front of the computer for several more hours for SLD clients.
How do I do it all? most people ask. I just do. Because SLD will continue to grow and be a success and maybe a few things will be adjusted in the portrait above.
And of course, I love it. I love coming up with new ideas for clients. I love weddings. I love babies. I love having a part in these amazing moments of my clients' lives…knowing that my little details made their memories just a little sweeter. I love helping other businesses grow and expand with some of knowledge and tools I have to share.
Love what you do and do what you love.
In honor of V-Day -
Thank you to my sweet hubby and family for putting up with my passion and enthusiasm for trying to do something even greater. XOXO
