Courageous Moving

SO... recently I moved. I packed up my stuff and moved from New York City to Atlanta, GA. The journey has been an interesting one to say the least. In July I lost my job. I wasn't to terribly disappointed in that fact, as the company I worked with was in serious financial trouble and it had become a volatile place to work. The anxiety that I felt from my unemployment came from the fact, that I now could no longer afford my apartment. This became a HUGE problem. But when it was all said and done with, unemployment became the best thing that could have ever happened to me. In the 6 months I've been unemployed. I've worked more and been more creative than I was in the 3 years I was in a firm working as a designer. Something is terribly wrong with that fact. Not that I'm more creative now, but that I wasn't before and it took a life altering slap in the face to get me to be more creative. I have to say that I am taking a lot of inspiration from my friend Tara, who is my age, but she has shown me what courage and pursuing your dreams is really all about. For anyone who wants to see what it means to be brave and to go after your dreams, look to Tara. In order to pursue her dreams of being a TV actress, she moved herself from New York City, to Los Angeles. And on top of all that, she blogs about her adventure every day! Some might think that she is crazy, but not me. I love it! She has inspired me to write more and in so doing, unlock some of the creativity that has been blocked inside me for so many years. Maybe it'll be crap and maybe it won't... So in the footsteps of Tara (, I am putting myself out there more and more. I am facing my fears and letting go of pre-conceived notions of how things "should" be and most of all I'm gonna drop my fear of being WRONG... The most amazing things just might happen. Good night and good luck...

Hello. I'm Bree Tuttle, owner of You in Mind Designs, LLC. I've been a designer for 13 years and I work with you in mind. There's much joy in discovering those treasures in your home that are, perhaps, misplaced or even in the attic. I will help you making every room a reflection of who you are personally. It's my philosophy that if you feel proud, safe, and at peace in your home, then it will affect all aspects of your life. You stand straighter, walk taller, dress better, work harder, sleep more soundly, and ultimately have a more fulfilling life. If I can help you do that, then I'll consider my job as your designer a success.
