PURE JOY

before
after

i returned from my trip and pretty much ran over to my studio to see the new all white look. i could not stop smiling! it was exactly what i had hoped for! this area shown above is the shooting area, so we are keeping it bare, with no furniture. i can’t wait for DIY, floral, style, and just plain creative shoots in here! my friend jesse is a photographer and is going to move into the space with us. i am so excited, but won’t overwhelm you with exclamation points. now for the decorating…

i’ve also hired my first full-time employee. it’s pretty crazy the changes that are going on over here. i am just trying to stay sane and focused. with these changes comes a lot of responsibility, i’m just hoping i can hold it all up. leaps of faith happening in DLF land. but it feels good! have an awesome weekend. i’m going wine tasting in solvang with arian for our 5 year anniversary. (can’t believe it’s been that long!) i love that guy. cheers. -bri

    Amazing! This blog looks exactly like my old one!

    It’s on a completely different subject but it has pretty much the same page layout
    and design. Wonderful choice of colors!
