I really wanted to say, no beginnings.  Because really I'm starting this new business from nothing but a pain in my heart, a longing that I've always had.  Not to be selfish or to stop working in the 'real world' but because I have never felt that I belong in that world.  My husband is SO passionate about his job.  His job is so satisfying because he does something that is both satisfying personally and professionally.  I actually get jealous that he has found this calling in life that he excels at, loves to do, and gets paid to do!  Here we are being happy at one of his "work" events: 
Me, on the other hand, I haven't been so lucky as to find what my husband has.  And don't think I haven't looked.  I have been working in the corporate world since I was 17 and have searched high and low for my calling.  I hope someone can back me up on this one - I have worked in retail, marketing, nonprofit, legal, finance.  The problem isn't the fact that these jobs were ALL horrible.  Some were, but the problem was my heart was never in it.  My heart has always been drawn elsewhere.  To some creative idea that I don't know if I will ever succeed in - starting my own business. 
Aside from a seemingly negative point of view about my new venture, I am VERY excited about the possibility that it holds!  I just want to be completely honest when blogging about my small beginnings because I don't feel that you get anywhere in life from not being truthful. 

I am going to put myself out there, put my work out there and hope that people like it!  Here goes, something...
