Back to School

For the past 2 years, I have been working in the corporate world after getting an undergraduate degree in business and graduating in 2010.  It has been such an amazing experience and I have met so many wonderful people through my work.  I am blessed to go to work each day knowing that I love who I work with and what I do.  When I was choosing a major, I felt a lot of pressure.  I had always heard that you were supposed to pick something "you were passionate about."  Wow, so I am supposed to know what to do for the rest of my life at age 18?!  Insanity!  Nonetheless, I chose to pick Energy Management, a business degree, and went forth without looking back.

I loved my classes, my teachers, the friends I made and the doors my degree opened up.  It wasn't until I already graduated college and was decorating my first apartment that I learned I truly loved interiors!  I poured over floor plans and decor ideas, websites, and magazines for hours, while simply loving every minute of it.  I didn't think too much about it until a year went by and I was still feeling a subtle, strange pull towards designing.  My creative juices were overflowing and I had no place to put them!  In fact, I have files upon files of inspiration photos I saved that spoke to me (before we had Pinterest I had to save hardcopies).  My blog was finally created as a space to organize my thoughts pertaining to design.  Needless to say, blogging about interiors and fashion with like-minded people is simply heaven for me.  

I am excited to announce that after much prayer, contemplation, and research I have officially decided to pursue a second bachelor's degree- this time in Interior Design!  I will be attending the Art Institute of Houston beginning in the next few months.  Because I love my "other" job and need to fund my new decision, I will be attending design school on nights and weekends.  Oh, I am SO excited!  I think it's time to invest in some chic college outfits!  Do people still dress up for class?


I will probably look like the biggest dork my first day.  Oh well.  Cheers to taking a leap of faith!
