Design life, meet motherhood…

Design life, meet motherhood…

I’ve had our new site up for a few months now and since launch date I’ve been planning/ scheduling/hoping to get the blog up and running yet, somehow everything else just got in the way. It could been because the site launched during one of the busiest seasons HOD has had in, well ever (not complaining, just saying) or could have been the fact that life just gets busier and busier with days  turning into weeks and weeks all of a sudden turning into MONTHS. Speaking of which, about 9.5 months ago my life became a hell of a lot more rewarding & a little more challenging. March 30th 2014 my little lady-baby came into this world and graced us with her unbelievable presence – my best creation by far. Luckily she was born on a Sunday so I was still able to finish off my work week the Friday before hand – I’m half joking with that comment I did meet with clients the Friday evening before going into labour but it wasn’t planned, Sasha just knew how much I would have hatted cancelling my appointment so she thoughtfully arrived over the weekend. It was a nice 8 day “rest” and back to work I went the following Monday. YES, this is a true story no half joking there – it’s like I was one of the seven dwarfs and went hi, ho, hi, ho…..back to work I go. But you see, my “work” is just as much a part of my life as anything else that’s meaningful. And so I began my new journey of learning how to blend my new title of Mama with my existing title(s) of designer, project manager,  entrepreneur, creative director…. apparently, I wear ALOT of hats. In  there somewhere is also wife, mom to my furry baby, daughter &  friend- I don’t think I can handle anymore.

It hasn’t been easy (thank gd for THE best support system ever) but it’s definitely been worth it. We have had some amazing projects come through our doors. I’m beyond excited to share our projects on the blog along with inspiration, concepts, progress reports… anything that’s happening at House of Design I will be sharing, I may even throw in a few mom-moments here and there- just to keep it interesting.
