Well hi there!! So, after sitting at my computer for about 45 minutes contemplating exactly how I was going to start this, or what I needed to say, all I could come up with is… “Is anyone out there?!” So there. I said it.
That’s just where I’m at right now! I have never put so much pressure on myself for perfection than I have in 2016, and let me just tell you how exhausted it has left me. Don’t get me wrong I believe in excellence in all that I do, but perfections and excellence aren’t the same thing. This website has quickly become my little baby for the past 12 months, and much like what I know about pregnancy, I have been carrying and preparing for this website to be brought into this world. I literally feel like my brain has mental stretch marks (if there was ever such a thing), I have had nausea thinking about the what if’s of it all, and much fear about birthing this baby out into the world. Today is Lovely Lettering Co.’s internet birthday. and like child birth, I’m finding myself exhausted, anxious, ridiculously excited. As hard as this has all been, I’d do it all over again knowing that its been worth it all!
So if your looking for perfection, you won’t find it here. If you look through the pages of Lovely Lettering Co. let me tell you what you will be sure to find… my heart in its rawest form, my love for the people, my love for coffee, meaningful and purposeful design, a few typos, and lots of grace to spread around.
This is going to be a space where I am going to write about it all. I’ll share about new things happening with LLCo. I’ll share stories about my not so graceful entrepreneur adventures. I’ll share funny stories about my husband (because trust me there are PLENTY!), and my many failed attempts at cooking basic meals. Like I was saying earlier, I’ve decided to toss perfection out the door! There is already too much of that in the world, so I’m just going to do what I know how to do best… be me!
So welcome, ladies and gents. I am so grateful you’re here!
