If your dreams don’t scare you, they aren’t big enough.
Today I’m celebrating my birthday. A birthday marks the beginning of a new year. It’s always been my favorite excuse to have some extra champagne and cake. This year, though, it also marks a transition to a new chapter of my life.
I’m embarking on what has to be the one of the scariest, but most exciting adventures in a long time: I’m pursuing Lilliput Design Studio full-time!! There have been a lot of mixed feelings about this decision. I’ve been excited, I’ve been scared. I’ve been incredibly nervous, but thanks to an incredibly supportive group that I’m lucky to call my family and friends, I’ve also felt encouraged.
I’ve always had an end-goal of being self-employed, but it’s always been a matter of “someday” and “maybe in the future,” but like any big life change, there’s never going to be a “right time,” you have to just hold your breath and jump in with both feet. Today I took that plunge.
A big, huge, glittery “THANK YOU!” to everyone who’s supported Lilliput along the way. Thank you to the brides who have trusted me with their weddings. Thank you to the wonderful people who have trusted me with creating their brands. A very special thank you to my amazing husband, Mike, and my brother, Miguel. Those two are my biggest cheerleaders and always erase any doubt I might have in myself.
Lilliput Design Studio wouldn’t be here without the support of my wonderful clients and customers, and to celebrate there will be a little giveaway happening over on Instagram (@lilliputdesign) that you should absolutely check out!
