I have some pretty exciting news to share with you today! About a week or two ago Craig and I sat down to have a messy picnic and a very serious conversation. A conversation that could only be had over egg salad and pizza flavored Gold Fish, apparently. We talked about the future and all of the things that we wanted for ourselves. We talked about our future babies, and how our adoption was going to change our lives next year. You know, one of those conversations that come up out of no where and you're all like...really? I mean, you can only solve so many questions in a 1 hour lunch break. We continued this conversation over the next few days - and then we started planning. Planning is my favorite - the future is a marvelous thing. There are so many possibilities, and choices, and you just have no idea where each road is going to lead you. Well, after much prayer and debate we have decided....
I will be leaving my 9-5 job to dive into my upholstery business full-time!
My last official day at work will be April 10th! I can not tell you how excited I am. This decision was not made lightly and it didn't completely come out of no where. We know that when we bring the babies home (yes, I said babies...multiple...two!) I will not be working. I want to make sure that I am home with them, bonding, loving, teaching them everything that I can. But just because I'm home doesn't mean that I want to do nothing. I want to continue to share my life with you, I want to follow my passions and make a difference.
I've been networking a bit with my upholstery and I have several jobs and projects lined up...but the problem has always been time! Where do people find the time?! So Craig says to me "Let's just jump in head first. Quit your job, see what you can do." Wow, that's scary, but we're doing it! I'm going to pick up a little part time job to make myself get out of the house a few hours a week, but other than that it will be just me and my staple gun....following my dream.
I hope you'll all be as excited as I am about change. Keep us in your prayers as we make this transition, which is never easy. And, of course, if you need some custom furniture you know where to find me :)
