Ok y’all. I’m back. Consistency on my website has never been my strength, but I think I’m starting to figure out why. Right now is an off season for me. With so many passions and so much creative energy built up inside of me, it makes someone who has never loved school feeling challenged and frustrated. As far back as I can remember I’ve hated school. I’m one of two sisters and I’m 100% the right brain of the two. Don’t get me wrong, education is extremely important, but as I’ve gotten older, I’m also learning that it isn’t just found in the classroom but rather by DOING in ya know, actual real life. I’ve never felt like I’ve taken the same path as the people around me and at times it has really made me doubt myself. I’ve always been “the rule follower” in life. I’ve stayed home from the parties because I was too scared to go. I started a blog in high school before the blog thing was huge and was absolutely terrified about what people would think. I’ve transferred schools once or twice and I just have never really felt at peace with where I was. I decided to take this semester off and really try to figure out where I needed to be. I’ve had countless one on one convos with Jesus just trying to figure out what HE would have me do. When you aren’t finding the answers, it can be extremely discouraging to feel like you have a purpose and that you’re on the path to where you need and want to be. I’ve always been a firm believer in (as cheesy as it sounds) everything happens for a reason but most importantly, in GOD’S timing. I was blessed to have crossed paths with my good friend Lucy White when I was just 15 years old. We go to the same church and she was looking for someone to watch her (at the time 2) now 3, crazy, fab kids that have become family to me. My sister took the job and loved them so much I knew I had to meet them! It worked out because we came to realize we lived just 2 streets apart and when my sister went off to college I instantly had a babysitting gig! Little did I know it would later become so much more than that. Lucy is my soul sister. She is extremely creative, a sweet southern gal, a Jesus lover and someone who has gone through similar hardships as me when it comes to anxiety. She has been such a blessing to have as someone that I can truly say “gets it”. Being the artist she is, she started her painting business @luluwhitepaints which became too much to handle working from home. She had dreamed of not only having a place to create her art but a place so much more than that, a creative outlet where all different people could come and have a place to create. Fast forward a few months and she asked me to help this dream come to life. With an amazing space and fab interior designer, I jumped on board and helped this special lady’s vision come to life! Her sneak peek party alone has shown just how talented she is. Lulu studio is set to open this October, with the purpose of “Create. Curate. Gather.” From a place to work, to a gallery, to a space to hold events this is honestly one of the prettiest spaces to spend your time that truly embodies everything she envisioned for it. From this experience alone, it really shows the power of prayer and God’s timing. Never did I think I would be part of such an exciting journey with someone I met 6 years ago. I am truly honored and so blessed to be doing this. With every season of life comes it’s challenges but today I look to the Lord and thank Him for all that is good. My health, my family, my opportunities, and even my struggles. I wouldn’t get to where I need to be without them. All I can say is God is so so good… and stay tuned.
