Maya with baby Margo, at Devine Ranch
If you have been wondering why my last post was over a year ago I have a totally rational explanation. I decided to put my blog on the back burner last year to focus on all of the things life threw at me. Now that the dust has settled I am really excited to start things back up. Thats life right an ebb and flow, that keeps us moving forward. This past year was, at times, emotionally trying and difficult but also exciting and progressive. Ill try to summarize a whole year in one sentence (may be a run-on, my apologizes in advance).
Basically…my family decided to sell our beautiful equestrian ranch & relocate to Santa Barbara, I had to close Devine Ranch the event venue business I started & ran for three years, my boyfriend & I moved (twice), I became a Certified Interior Decorator, I did the interior design & decorating of my parents new Lake Tahoe home, I worked with great clients on both interior & event projects, and I got really into sourdough bread baking (so random but think Tartine Bread). It was one of those years that pushed me out of my comfort zone, in a good way, and reminded me of what is really important. I am thankful for every lesson life has given me and know that with each day I am becoming a stronger person.
I hope you can now better understand my hiatus from blogging. With the fresh start of a new year I feel inspired and excited for what adventure lies ahead and am so happy I can share them all with you here on a Devine lifestyle.
