The last few days have been… challenging. When you decide to take the leap and assume the epic responsibility of business ownership, no one tells you how hard it can be. Okay, they do tell you, but you don’t really listen. Because your business experience is going to be different. {You’d think that life experience would have shut that ego up by now, mmm?}

I’ll spare you the gory details and just say this: sometimes being the big cheese stinks.

When I was deep in a funk earlier today, I started cruising Pinterest for some pick-me-up inspiration, and came across this pretty collage of quotes related to success. A click-through takes you to a blog called Life…Your Way, where the image is available for free download to don on your desktop. I added it to my Macbook to help remind me of why I’m here, and give me a little kick in the pants when I need one.

As I stood beside my husband this morning through a difficult confrontation, I couldn’t stop thinking about how blessed I am to have him next to me. When we have terrible days that sometimes bleed into trying weeks, I remind myself that we made a choice to take this crazy leap and fall face first into flowers {and now fashion!} and I know that while the landing may not always be graceful, it’s probably not going to kill us.

And you know what they say about what doesn’t kill us…

    You can do anything in fabulous shoes…and they are really FAB!

    I admire you wholeheartedly! Starting up your own business is so difficult and I’m sure there are so many headaches along the way. However, I bet the good times are really so rewarding that it makes it all worth it! Good luck with everything!

    How do you keep that jacket of yours looking so fresh and pressed? I purchased it after seeing it on your blog….and mine just never looks that smooth and wrinkle free? Also, I’ve had a tough week at work. Keep your chin up. At least you are young and still have your beautiful looks. That’s what I tell myself. =)

  • Robin 01/24/2012 at 11:56 pm

    Keep your head up! It will all be worth it in the end. Just indulge in the occasional Pin-fest and keep smiling. Love the leopard pumps!

    It’s very much the same way with kids. More difficult than you thought… and more rewarding, too! Keep up the good work! Your jacket and shoes are super cute. :)

  • Jennifer 01/24/2012 at 8:26 pm

    Well you look absolutely gorgeous, as always. You are also always an inspiration!

  • Lisa 01/24/2012 at 8:04 pm

    I agree with Carrie: it’s in the air! Well, chin up and all that. It’s got to get better right?!
