who what wear love t-shirt (sold out) and the maxi skirt is a sample for a project i am working on and will be for sale soon

never in my life had i been a "let's just wait and see" type of person.  i was a planner and a doer, making lists upon lists upon lists that all formed some sort of plan and then i would diligently go to work to make those plans happen.  but then holden arrived in my life and all of that suddenly changed.  i stopped focusing so much on the future, where my life was going to lead, what i was going to do "with the rest of my life" (something that used to consume my everyday), and began living and focusing on the present.  i stopped doing things that i felt like i should do and concentrated my efforts on the parts of my life that i really loved, honoring the changes in my world without wishing that i felt, looked, acted, loved, or worked any differently. i stopped worrying so much about my life plan, trusting that i would recognize the next steps when they appeared.

and it seems that that big break from all my incessant planning gave me the space to dream and discover what i really wanted out of life.  the end of this month marks holden's second birthday and along with that a big new start for our family.  mr. b and i have been dreaming and planning and staying up into the early hours of the mornings, hoping to create a life that will make us happy.  we have a few different projects we are launching in the next month and will also be moving to a new home although we still have no idea where that home will be.  our future is a little up in the air at the moment (which is somewhat terrifying) but here's to living on faith and trusting in the unknown!
