So the craziest, coolest thing happened a couple weeks ago. I got a job! I'm the new Home Editor for My Chic Life. Say what?!?!?!?!?!
I'm so thrilled to be joining such a talented team of women! I'm so humbled by this amazing opportunity, and I'm just plain thankful.
When I started this little blog almost 3 years ago I had no idea what a fun adventure it would be! After moving 7 times in 10 years and finally deciding to put down roots (for a while at least), I was feeling uninspired in the "make this house a home" department. Being surrounded by unpacked boxes and house to-do lists a mile long can be a little overwhelming when you've been-there-done-that so many times before. On a whim one night I started a blog and hit publish for the very first time and hoped that by doing so I would get my creative juices flowing again. I figured my mom would read it and maybe some of my family members and friends would pop in to read from time to time. All I really cared about was getting back to being the girl I once was......the girl who is constantly rearranging furniture.........the girl who on a wild whim decides to repaint a room.......the girl who buys a wet tile saw and tiles a countertop even though she's never tiled anything before in her life........the girl who lives and loves to decorate her home in her own unique way! I wanted that girl to come back, but she needed a push.
That's what Our Fifth House is......it's the push I needed to get back to being me again. And I'm so very thankful for the push it gave me. It pushed me into a field of inspiration.....it pushed me into you guys! You have no idea what a joy you all are to me! Your blogs and your creativity blow me away on a daily basis! The friendships I've made through blogging are so cherished! The time you take to leave a comment is humbling! The e-mails, tweets and facebook comments make me grin from ear to ear! This community is so genuinely amazing, and I'm so very thankful to be a small part of it. And I know without a doubt that it is because of you guys this cool new job came about - so THANK YOU!
My Chic Life is all about inspiring women to rock their awesome selves. Cheers to that!
