Good things come…

…hopefully!  Right?!  After a ton of CAD, a glass of wine and taking a leap of faith by moving some desks around at the office last night, I’ve come to realize that my original configuration for the third floor of our space just isn’t going to cut it.  WORST.  And after waking up at 2:30 this morning with a light bulb moment, trying it in CAD and seeing the new idea successfully come together (YES!), I’m too excited to go back to sleep.  So, indeed – if good things could please come to those who are up late, that would be fantastic ;-)

Hope you have a great day and more updates to come!  xo

Dreamer

Screen Shot 2014-03-19 at 12.05.07 PMI randomly woke up at 4:30 this morning and hopped on Instagram which is a recipe for disaster if I’m trying to fall back asleep.  While I was scrolling through, I came across this and fell in love with it.  I am not a morning person by nature and while I love the morning once I’m up, getting out of bed is a major struggle.  I blame it on being involved in way too many activities in high school – dance team after school, studio dance until 10 or 11pm and then home to do homework until 1 or 2:00am with classes starting again at 7:20am.  Seriously, how did we do that while we were growing up?!  Needless to say, I remained a night owl through college and to this day, for me, mornings are the pits.  Couple a bad habit with the fact that my bed is a freaking cloud (seriously, SO comfortable) and I’m never getting up.  This, however, put things in perspective for me this morning and I found myself getting out of bed and into the kitchen to make coffee at 5:30am.  My morning was so productive, I felt surprisingly refreshed and was more than ready to tackle the day.  I think I need to plaster this to my ceiling or on my nightstand so it’s the first thing I see when my alarm goes off ;-)  Just thought I’d pass it along in case any of you need a little extra motivation too!  Hope you’re having a great week chasing your dreams and changing the world!

TGIF!

tumblr_m85f6tm0C21qlu8g1o1_1280Came across this a while back on Pinterest and it always helps me feel a little better when I need it most.  This week was tough.  My mom and aunt were visiting last week and having them in town was SO nice.  It’s really hard not having any family within 2,500 miles and saying goodbye only gets harder over the years.  Coming home to an empty house on Monday after work felt a lot lonelier than I’d anticipated it would and even little Lily couldn’t fill the void (although she tried with tons of cute snuggles and meows).  Fast forward 2 days and I’m drowning in a sea of work in preparation for what feels like a million projects before I leave for a week on vacation.  SUPER excited to go on vacation, but trying to squeeze in a TON beforehand to make up for the time I’m going to be gone has been stressful.  Do you ever feel that way too?

Anyway!  I’m excited for a weekend with my love and my kitty in an amazingly clean and adorable backyard that my mom and aunt so generously spruced up last week.  Can’t wait to share some images soon :-)  In the meantime, have a very happy weekend!

Monday Inspiration

c4e5f2d41440c53ab113ae7490353fe4

Just wanted to pass along a little inspiration for your Monday…. a reminder to always follow your dreams.  I learned that a good friend from high school passed away last week while I was home for the weekend in Michigan and the news hit me like a ton of bricks.  I was speechless.  There were so many things left open ended, so many questions that were never answered and so many words that were never spoken.  One thing I know is that it was Dave’s dream to save the world… I just wish we had been able to save him first.  It’s been a tough 24 hours and this has kept me going.  I think he’d really love it.

Hold your loved ones close, take the time to listen, always follow your heart and turn your dreams into your destiny.

With love,

Meg
