The Backstory

Updated: Jun 28, 2020

Picture this: Sitting at a desk in a room with no windows for eight hours a day, begging (to no one in particular) for time to speed up so you can leave. Yup, you guessed it. That was me. I worked at a very small design firm after graduation and it didn’t take me long to realize I was miserable. My coworkers were great, but I just don’t think I was made for a desk job. Although it was creative, it just wasn’t creative enough. I would day dream about finding something else to do, and everyone I vented to would ask me, “What makes you happy?”

That question would soon haunt me for months to come. I had no idea what I wanted to do! I know I loved design, but I just couldn’t handle clients who saw me as a child and didn’t trust a 21-year-old with the task of designing their kitchen. (Which low key I get, but that’s beside the point.) I decided to buy myself some time and go to grad school, which I was able to do for free thanks to my dad’s GI Bill, so why the heck not?! I got a generalized masters degree so that I could really apply for whatever job I figured out I wanted to do by the time I graduated. Well, fast-forward and here we are, come graduation and I realized I am already doing what I love, making all sorts of wedding calligraphy goodies!

Despite Covid-19 temporarily destroying the wedding industry and maybe not choosing the best time to do this full-time, I’m excited to see where this little creative journey of mine takes me! And thank you for being here to tag along!
