ONE WHOLE YEAR and today I am celebrating one of the BEST CHOICES I have ever made for myself! From the opportunitites to pure happiness the blog has brought to my life, today I am celebrating how sincerely blessed I am for Hello GorJess!
In the last year the blessings and opportunities have come in multitude. I often feel so unworthy of these many opportunities, but take them as a sign that I must be doing something right! God has a plan for me and I am just along for the ride!
The blog started out as a hobby and something fun I wanted to do for myself. I’ve been researching and talking about starting this for about 2 years. On February 19, 2017 I decided to GO FOR IT! I woke up and said, today is the day! I wrote my first post and the rest is history! You’ve got to start somewhere, right?
I knew that I had so much to learn. Building an audience takes time, hard work and dedication. I also knew there would be challenges but I was ready and willing to take on whatever came my way in order to fulfill my dream.
Little did I know this would grow into a small side business. I’m so grateful to all of my clients who put their trust in me to design and organize a space in their home. The fact that they believe in me and my design esthetic is such an honor and true blessing.
Teaming up with each of you is such a joy and I’m forever grateful for all of you and love each of you dearly!
Each day I wake up eager for the day’s adventure. Each day I get to do what I love, meet amazing and talented people and allow my creativity to flow.
My mom told me that when I was little I woke up each day determined to make something (and I still wake up with the same determination). Since she was a stay at home mom, she always allowed me be personally creative and make just about anything I wanted (under her supervision of course). I must thank her for allowing me to exercise my brain and jog my creativity. Because of this daily practice, I am now able to apply this to my blog, graphics and design esthetic.
The MOST important thing I learned from starting Hello GorJess is trust, loyalty, family, true friendship and the TRUE meaning of support. I’ve learned and gained so much respect for my friends and family who have gone above and beyond to support me EVERY step of the way. I call these people my home team. They read every blog post diligently, give me feedback, cheer me on and are ready to lend a helping hand without even asking. They expect nothing less than my best and support every decision I make. To these people, you know who you are, I’m indebted to you and you know just how much I love ya (MUAH)💋
The point and purpose of Hello GorJess is to share my Louisiana lifestyle, personal beliefs and style with all of you. More than anything, I hope in the last year you have been inspired in some form or fashion. Whether it be to remodel a room, try out a new recipe, workout, take on new beliefs or style, I hope you have taken something away from Hello GorJess. After all, this would not exist without each of YOU “gorjess” people! Thanks for reading and allowing me to share my life with each of you.
As always, STAY GORJESS💋✌🏼
