This job was just too perfect to pass up, so I'm making it work. It all started when I asked a friend from CrossFit (it always goes back to CrossFit) if he knew a woman in finance that we could feature on The Everygirl. He suggested his boss, sent over her bio, and and we got the ball rolling on her career feature. This woman is awesome. Young, incredibly driven, smart, and successful. And so nice, too! You should all be very excited about this feature. I know I am.
Photo shoot was done a few weeks ago, and last week, my friend asked if I knew someone who might want to help his boss finish her condo. I said I'd be interested in the project, he sent her the links to my home tour, and she emailed me. I stopped by her place on Tuesday expecting to discuss the project and walked out the door with measurements and swatches. She just flipped this place and did a beautiful job, so I have been given a gorgeous blank canvas with a few beautiful key pieces and the rest is up to me. I have never taken on anything this big and was a little nervous at first but those feelings have already passed. Now I'm just excited and I am just so grateful that this connection was made. I owe someone a paleo dessert. I've just had some really unfortunate luck when it comes to baking.
It has only been two days but I am loving this job so much that I stayed up working until midnight on Wednesday. From sourcing furniture, bedding, lighting, and accessories to creating inspiration boards, I am enjoying all of it. And I'll get to design my first nursery! The baby (it's a surprise) is due in just a few weeks!
