I’m so pumped. I had two serious goals this year:
1. To win the Knot’s “Best Of” award.
2. To get published in a well read blog.
Within two days of each other, and only 1.5 months left of 2012 I got news of both! I heard from The Knot that I won the best of award, and I was published in Wedding Wire Blog! This news has definitely taken me out of my “beginning of winter/slow season funk” and seriously brightened up my week. This just shows me that all my hard work even pays off in the slow season:) That doesn’t mean I stop working, haha.
In addition to these two fabulous nuggets of news, I also ran into my studio landlord who then offered me and my studio mate to take over the space next door. There is a door that connects the two, it has just been bolted shut for 6 years. I have been dreaming of a space to work in, to actually get out of the house and out of my pajamas. I used to envy people that work from home, but now I know that the part worthy of envy is setting your own hours. I feel like I would get so much more done if I actually set myself specific hours to work at an actual office. I have nothing distracting me – no food in the fridge, no animals with sad “pay attention to me” eyes, no laundry waiting to be folded, and the list goes on. I could actually come home from work and do all of those things like a normal person, rather than sporadically throughout the day. I don’t know if I am more excited about the working space or the fact that I may get to be a normal person.
Happy weekend everyone!
