Its amazing how one decision can change your life……
I remember being little and asked “what do you want to be when you grow up”?
Well, obviously I did not want to be a writer! My spelling is atrocious and lets not even begin to talk about my grammar. I guess you could say I never really paid too much attention in those classes. I had more of an artsy mind.
I would reply to that question that I wanted to be a doctor, or a therapist, or even a teacher. I think we all know I am none of the above.
If you would have asked me when I graduated college…what are you going to be when you grow up? I would have said….a speech therapist. And just to add a cherry on top, I would own my own speech therapy clinic.
I always knew I would be my own boss. It was a burning feeling I had deep down inside. I truly could feel it. I didn’t know at the time what I was going to do, but I just knew. After I graduated college and pursued speech therapy. I quickly realized WOW this is not for me. Speech therapy is a wonderful field to be in, but it just wasn’t me.
So I dreamed of being a painter…of wineglasses. Haha that still makes me laugh. So, Brandon and I went out and bought the paint and the wineglasses and after painting my first glass I was OVER it. So back to square one. Next I dreamed of opening a bridal boutique. I researched and researched and researched. And this was it. It was very hush hush, and I was ready to talk to the bank about a loan. Little did I know how much really goes into opening a bridal boutique. I quickly got overwhelmed and decided that was not the path for me.
I will never forget when I saw the info commercial for the Cricket. YES I said the Cricket!!! I wanted it so bad!!! I imagined myself making beautiful cards and invitations and selling them on etsy. I also wanted to pursue photography and I wanted my own camera. I guess you could say I am a bit of a dreamer.
When my birthday rolled around, Brandon said I could pick between the Cricket or a Nikon camera.
What if I chose the Cricket?
