Back from my Blogging Hiatus!

Happy Canadian Thanksgiving!  I’m finally back from my blogging hiatus!

I thought today was the perfect day to start my blogging journey again since I am thankful for so many things.  As many of you know, my father passed away this past February after his long battle with prostate cancer and I went kind of numb.  I had absolutely no interest in my writing on my blog, marketing my business or design clients.  Sometimes I just felt like I wanted to crawl into a hole and never come out.  However, life doesn’t stop – not with a family, friends and work life.

thankful & grateful

I’m thankful for my mother, who has been the strongest, most selfless woman I know, taking such good care of my father during his last year of life.  She continues to inspire me to be the best person I can be as a woman, wife and mother.  My husband who has been an absolute rock to me.  The nights he held me as I sobbed uncontrollably in his arms and his unwavering support will never be forgotten and I love him so much for being the husband that he is.  My sweet daughters who constantly make me smile, laugh and challenge me to just let loose when I start getting too serious.  My wonderful girlfriends who are there to always to offer a helping hand and get me out for some GNO fun!  And last, my design clients, who let me take time to mourn and heal.  Not many clients would do that, and I take pride that I have developed close relationships with the clients I have.

So now I’m back to blogging!  I’ve been working on some exciting design projects & starting new partnerships that I look forward to sharing with you in future blog posts.  I also had a huge milestone birthday this past August (hashtag glamamamaturns25x2) and celebrated with a fabulous vacation in London, Paris and Lisbon.  I celebrated my birthday having dinner at the Eiffel Tower and spending time at Chanel’s flagship store on 31 Rue Cambon.  😉  The pictures my husband & I took would fill over a thousand blog posts but I promise to share highlights from each city.
