After a nearly 3 year hiatus from the blog, I’m back! In the Fall of 2013, I began planning to open my dream business, and in February 2014, it happened. Council Studio has been trucking along since then, and we continue to offer wardrobe styling + personal shopping services as well as a storefront with inventory. Since the last post in 2013, I have gotten engaged, married, opened a business, moved across town, and adopted 3 new pets. My husband, Lee, and I now live in Franklin, TN, a suburb of Nashville, with our two cats and two dogs, and a baby on the way! We work in Nashville, and enjoy both cities. Franklin has provided us a slower pace and almost a little getaway within the Nashville area. Lee also opened a business managing Airbnb’s on the side of his full time healthcare job. Needless to say, we have had a lot going on. After finding out we’re expecting a baby, I knew it was time to stop and smell the roses a little more. Life was passing us by, and finding a balance was necessary, in order to prepare for baby and just enjoy life a little more. It’s a tough task, slowing down, when we both are so passionate about our businesses. In some of my “slowing down” I got to thinking more about things I used to do for fun before life was all about work. I started this blog as a fun way to keep my creative juices flowing, and hopefully help with style questions in the process. Lately, I’ve had some friends encourage me to start it back as a way to journal my pregnancy. So many people, including myself, have so many questions when entering into new life experiences such as marriage, business, pregnancy, etc. so I figured I could help to shed some light on things I have found to be helpful throughout my journey thus far. Not every post will be a Q &A, but I love getting questions, so keep ’em coming! Thanks for reading, and enjoy!
