My life is an open book

Today I get to participate in a blog crawl that was put together by Beth of Hello Splendor.

The blog crawl is a way to form a sense of community within bloggers. Everyone that participated in the blog crawl had to do a post about their life in a nutshell.

I tend to over share on this blog so I'm sure you'll know all of my answers before reading below!

While I would love to take full credit for everything I do on this blog I can't. The majority of it wouldn't get down if I didn't have Jon's help. From DIY projects to client installs the man does it all with a smile!

I was very excited to be able to take part in Beth from Hello Splendor's blog crawl.

Now it can't just be about Jon & I most of the time whether he likes it or not these folks are around:

*Don't worry I swear he doesn't mind that they around a lot. It gives him a lovely excuse to escape and play video games while I'm distracted by my sisters.

The Setting: I was born and raised a city girl. I moved to the suburbs at the start of middle school, but I will always consider myself a Manhattanite. Of course Jon loves grass and trees and things like that so our home remained in the suburbs.

The Plot: Oh you all know the story.

Girl meets Boy
Girl marries Boy
Girl & Boy purchase 1st home.
Girl hits 25 and has massive quarter life crisis.
Girl ditches past in retail buying & art direction and starts blog and studies design!
Girl takes on clients, continues blogging and lives happily ever after.

Here I am doing a little bit of everything: Faux blogging at the design center along with chatting guests up about design:

The twist...
Ah we all know I've had some personal ups and downs with starting a family, but lets just keep this happy and positive! Hopefully all of my twists are behind and I'm finally on the right course. Took long enough this lady turns 30 in May!

I seem to be the last blogger to go on this blog crawl. If you have a chance you can check out Hollie who went yesterday.
