I love home design. For as long as I can remember, my dream was to become an architect. I would spend hours and hours on the floor of my parents’ house drawing floor plans for homes and buildings. I owned every home plan magazine and book that the store sold, and I had every intention of making that dream come true.
In college I came to the realization that I did not, in fact, want to be an architect. I loved choosing finishes for buildings and coming up with ideas for what those buildings could look like, but I hated the details. Determining load structures and doing sun/shade tests on sugar cube towers was not working for me.
So I switched. I finished a degree in Religious Studies and now work a day job for a great church. I get to do some graphic design work, which keeps my skills tuned, and I get to be immersed in something that I believe is of utmost importance – faith.
I’m still trying to figure out what my dream is.
But in the meantime, I get to spend my free time with my amazing family working on turning our second house into our new home.
