Being that today is Valentine's Day, I thought this would be the perfect opportunity to explain the meaning behind the name I've chosen for this website, 23 Design Company.
A few months ago, I began toying with the idea of trying to get my foot in the door of interior design. I had quite a few opportunities come my way in this area recently, and not only did I get great feedback, but I LOVED it. But trying to figure out what the next step was somewhat daunting...even the idea of starting a blog gave me quite a bit of anxiety. I would try to "forget" about it or put off trying to figure out a name or find some other way to stall because I just wasn't quite sure I was up for it. That's where my 23 comes in...Trey, my husband, was so encouraging, giving me the extra push when I needed it most. He believed in me and helped me muster up the confidence to get this up and running. Without him, I most definitely would have left this dream behind. And the 23? It's our anniversary date, February 3.
I know I'm only 2 weeks into this, but I am loving every minute of it. So, on this Valentine's Day, I'm extra thankful for my Valentine. He puts up with my constant projects, my garage space used for all these ridiculous projects, my thrifting, and all my other crazy ideas. He is exactly what God knew I needed and I couldn't be more thankful for him...especially this year!
