What A Year!

It's amazing the quotes one can find on Pinterest.  Sometimes they just hit you right between the eyes like this one did.

2014 began with the most amazing trip to Paris in February to celebrate my "big" birthday.

It was there that our new company, Les Méchantes was born.

We came home and went to work making our dream a reality.
Les Méchantes launched in November!

On top of starting a business, we decided to sell our home and move to San Francisco.

I went to work getting our home ready for market.

It took at least four months of painting, repairing and staging.

The hard part was deciding what to do with all our stuff that has accumulated for 15 years!

The house sold in September, and I try not to look back!

We bought a house in San Francisco that needed to be remodeled.

As 2014 comes to a close, our new home looks like this.
It's like I have a new "blog muse" now!  So many decisions to make and progress to follow.
This is the biggest project I've ever taken on and I'm definitely going to need to blog about it!

In the meantime, we are crammed in our rental with two dogs, a cat and my mother who I moved here this month.  The rental is also command central for the remodel and new business.
Yes, it's been quite a year!

 So, my New Year's resolution is to blog more, so hopefully I can re-commit to Vignette Design in 2015!
