The Friday Edit

Happy Friday! How are you?? It’s been a really busy week, especially because I’ve brought on a new team member! Her name is Melissa, in case you notice a new name and face popping up here and on Instagram. It’s taken me about 4 years to get to the point where I could bring someone else on. I had an editorial assistant for a couple of years and she was incredibly helpful, but after she moved on it was really hard for me to find that I could trust someone. Not saying she wasn’t trustworthy, but they were big shoes to fill! Life also threw a ton of curveballs my way and I wasn’t always financially able to commit to bringing someone on, even in a part-time capacity. My recent health scare really put things into perspective and helped me to realize that working weekends, having 16 hour days, always being on… that isn’t how I want to live my life. I NEED balance. Melissa reached out to me at the right time and I am so excited to have her on board. Stay tuned for an even better version of this blog and more!
