Out of the Blue

You ever have something happen, right out of the blue? When my step-father was diagnosed with Liver Cancer 10-months ago, I made a difficult decision to leave my cushy corporate gig, and be self-employed as a full-time interior designer. It allowed me freedom to travel to Texas when my mother needed me most, and the opportunity to explore and develop a calling I've had for years.

Recently, with the sudden news of a new house, I've been thinking about getting back into the corporate pool to make purchasing all the lovely things to make Beech Wood Cottage a home. After all, a few design consultations, cross bottle sales, will not cover all of the wish list items, let along the must have items.

Then, out of the blue, I get a call from my corporate boss, asking me to take a temporary management position during a property transition. WHAT!?! Of course, I said! Sure, it's only temporary, but it's the boost I needed to feel comfortable making some of those sorts of decisions.

Might keep me from blogging as often as I'd like - but I'm still here! How was your day?
