Seriously people? Talk about luck! What a great opportunity for this young couple. To make a living out of something they are passionate about, both work out of their home, both being able to raise their child together, and make enough money to live off of.To give you the shortened version: This young newlywed couple bought their first home. It was an average home for this neck of the woods (Roanoke, VA.) but a good fixer upper. They saw great potential, and they immediately set to work with DIY renovations! It took them four years to complete the house the way they wanted it. They blogged about their experience along the way. Soon they found themselves being asked to write a book, write a regular column in Better Homes and Gardens, made an HGTV appearance, and went on the Nate Berkus Show. Now, they are full-time bloggers, stay at home parents, and homeowners to a new fixer upper!
This is my dream job (other than the Anthropologie Creative Art Director)! To fix up, to renovate, to revitalize, and to inspire. This blog proved to me that it can be done, but is it practical for everyone?
So, the million dollar question is...do you follow your heart or your head?
We all want to follow our heart, but we have all seen that get us into trouble one time or another. But then again, if we choose to follow our head, will we regret not choosing to follow to our heart? And there are always those "haters". You know, the people that can't simply understand why we would choose our heart. Maybe... it's because they don't have one. ;)
We've all heard, "Where there's a will, there's a way". Well, I have the will. I have had will for a long time and made things happen; made a life for myself, graduated college, joined the professional community, married a wonderful man. Granted, I didn't do this all on my own. Through many prayers, God placed the right people in my life at the right time. And with their support I was able to accomplish some things many thought wasn't possible coming from my position. But it was only possible through their encouragement. It was easier to believe in myself when others believed in me first.
So, which do you choose? Your heart or you head?
