The Autumn light is pouring in so beautifully this morning. I love the way the light changes in our home with each new Season. Speaking of seasons....I was reminded this morning of those "young" days when I had 3 little kiddos under age 5 at my side. It was tiring and wonderful, exhausting and fulfilling each day. It was my life.
And now it's only Capri and I, (and growing baby.xoxo). It's a new season. Not better, just different and we love and embrace it with our whole hearts. Jake and I are learning how to manage our home, our business and our marriage. It requires a lot of leaning into each other like never before. I say "manage" because we believe "balance" is overrated. How often are you on the balanced side of balance? It's a losing word I think. But manage....we can do manage, we're good at that. It's a winning word.
We're in the middle of 3 large projects right now with our business. One complete demo/reno with a new custom kitchen. The next one is an addition with a new kitchen, living space and patio. Lastly an addition with a small kitchen, bathroom/living room and bedroom.
It's W-I-L-D!! We are so GRATEFUL and HUMBLED by the growth of our company. And we can confidently say that the #1 thing we're learning is that IT'S NOT ABOUT US....it's about our dear clients, about their cares and desires, their concerns and needs. In many ways it's like parenting. Being Dad and Mom has prepared us for being business owners and being business owners is making us into the Dad and Mom we want to be. We try our best to pay attention and love and listen well. We make mistakes and ask for forgiveness. We have good days and not so good days, at work and at home.
We see more and more the value of the overlapping in our lives. What we're putting our hands to isn't REALLY about what we're putting our hands to, it's about so much MORE, it's deeper than "getting the job done" or "being a good Mom" or "doing the right thing." It's about THE WHOLE PERSON.and I believe the WHOLE of life is at work, every. single. aspect. The home. And the office.
