Why a blog?

I’ve toyed with the idea of starting a blog for a long time.  Writing has always been a secret interest of mine, I just never felt like I had anything important to say.  Especially in this social-media-driven world, where the goal is to go “viral.”  To me, the appeal is in the ability to have a record of my life experiences.  And I’m happy to share those thoughts with anyone who’s interested in listening.

So why now?  Well, I turn 30 this year.  Ever since I came to the realization that I’m in the last year of my 20’s, I’ve done some serious soul-searching.  For the past 9 years, I’d been in a career that I didn’t really choose.  I had started working as a waitress in college, because I love food and working with people.  When success and opportunities came my way, I grabbed them.  I promoted quickly and soon was running my own restaurant.  I worked hard for several years, and I really did love what I did and who I worked with.  However, I recently realized that with all the hard work I was doing, I’d missed out on a lot of life.  There came this moment of clarity: I acknowledged that if I was going to make a change, I needed to do it now.  So I began the process of changing my life, and I haven’t looked back since.

Last year I joined the wonderful world of real estate.  It’s always been a true passion of mine and I have the opportunity to make a real impact on other people.  I live and work in Katy, TX, and I absolutely love it here!  This career choice has allowed me to get back to what I feel is truly important: Faith, Family and Friends.  I look forward to sharing my thoughts on this wonderful city and hope that someone out there may find it useful!
