My life has changed so dramatically over the last 24 months.
I am no longer who I was and so what I want has changed with that.
I am so excited for the next chapter of my life. My imagination is in full flight, dreaming up new and exciting ideas and plans.
I had no idea that I could feel this happy and excited again after losing what I thought was my dream life.
As it turns out, even the biggest clouds do have silver linings! 🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈 #changeisgood#silverlining#lifeisgood#itonlygetsbetter#startingover
I see you grief...just when I think I’m done with you, you painstakingly remind me we aren’t quite done yet. But know this, I won’t run the other way, I’m here to face you head on, I refuse to carry you with me as a burden, to let you emerge in places you don’t belong, or ruin what my future holds for me. So today I invite you in again, I’ll be angry, I’ll be sad, I’ll feel the pain that comes with you. I know that through this pain I will find forgiveness, hope, and love!! I won’t quit!!

A lot of time you look at home decor decisions on Instagram and go “Why did you do that? I liked the before!” Case in point if you scroll to the next photo, you’ll see the navy blue walls I had just painted over and I’ll bet you’ll ask what was wrong with that? Why would you do that?! Well, I loved that dark wall colour. I really did, especially at Christmas. Then one day I didn’t. Seeing something on a photo that is edited, finely tuned and styled is very different than the everyday reality of living with something. What used to feel moody and sexy began to feel dark and depressing and everything just felt off. Our entire home is wood, white, black and grey accents. The navy felt like someone else’s home. We’ve had white painted walls for as long as I can remember and the one time I tried something different, it didn’t work. No biggie. It’s just paint. And while it may not make for the best Pinterest photo, the room feels happier and lighter to me now, off of the computer screen - which as many of you now, is the most important thing. That your home makes you happy. Now to find a plant that won’t die in that left hand corner. 🌿
🦋change is an important part of growth🦋
I believe that everything happens for a reason, you woke up today for a reason, you went through that hard time for a reason. Everything we go through shapes us into the person we were made to be.
Choose to take everything that happens to you as a lesson. Learn from everything you go through and use it to grow. We are all human, meaning we will mess up from time to time but take it as a lesson and do better next time.
Change is transformation.. just like a 🐛 turns into a 🦋 you are growing and transforming into the beautiful, amazing, and unique person you are on Earth to be. Embrace the change and even though sometimes change can be hard, adapt and grow from it. Learn to love the change💓
That saying “I hope you never change” is preposterous. When people say it they usually mean it in the nicest way and they are really trying to say something like, “the qualities (like kindness, humor, joy, authenticity) that I value in your character should never be lost, no matter what happens.” But even leaves 🍁 on trees 🌲 change seasonally so we should be too! Keep growing and shifting and progressing because only nothing stays the same.

Update: Brit has a new look for Season 2 💁🏻♀️❤️. What do you think about a BRUNETTE Brit? #supersingleseries
As you all know, there has been some major changes at the salon in the last few months.
But I am excited to announce that I will be moving to Razor Sharp Cuts next month. I am sad to be leaving the salon I’ve called home for the last 4 years, but change is inevitable.
Razor is on the corner of 14th and Grant, just behind the Capitol building! There is a parking garage ☺️ so parking will not be a problem.
Thank you all for going on this journey with me. I’m excited for new things to come.
If you have any questions/concerns, please don’t hesitate to reach out! 🖤🖤🖤
My sweet boy went off to kindergarten today. While I was filling out the obligatory first day of school placard for my son to hold while I took his picture, I paused for a minute at the statement, “When I grow up, I want to be...” I glanced up from my work and asked my son this question. He shrugged and said, “I dunno, Mom.” I asked him again. “C’mon, A! There must be something you want to be when you grown up.” Exasperated, he sighed and said, “I just don’t know, ok?” I stopped. I wanted to keep pressing him. My Type A by nurture personality didn’t want to leave a blank. Plus, all those other moms would have perfectly filled out apples with cute phrases and cheerful, smiley kids. And then I realized something.
Why would I want my kindergartner to have any idea what he wants to be when he grows up?? I want him to know that he never needs to decide. He can change his mind at 20, and again at 30 and yet again at 55. He can go to school or go into the military or go to trade school or marry rich or travel full time and find a way to make his dreams come true. He can go to college at 18, 22, 35...or never. It’s all ok. There are so many different ways to get from point A to point B and I don’t want him to forget that.
So I left it blank. And it serves as an important reminder to me. Don’t pigeonhole yourself or anyone else. And as I know firsthand, you’re never too old to change careers or go back to school or find a job. Keep dreaming.
A year ago I left my full time job. A hard decision considering the steady income, but one of the best decisions I ever made. Starting a new business is no joke, but it’s less stressful than where I was last year. 🖤 #beyourownboss#girlboss#thankful#changeisgood
