Four years and counting – Blog Anniversary

HAPPY BLOG-VERSARY/BLOGGY BIRTHDAY TO ME!
(Tomorrow actually)
*tosses confetti* Life and Lips turns 4 years old 2/25/2014.

When I started this blog I had no vision in mind, shoot I still don’t honestly. I just knew I wanted a place to be Mi. To talk about what I wanted to talk about, to share what I wanted to share and make it look pretty. Well I’ve accomplished that! I didn’t have many followers, didn’t know how I would get followers and didn’t worry about it honestly. I just knew I was going to post even if I was the only one reading. Some days I still feel like I might be the only one reading. hahahaha

I don’t follow the zodiac much but from what I’ve read I am a Libra to my core. I’m crafty, creative, like things balanced all of that. My favorite part of Mi is that I’m such a dreamer. I dream in color honey, and in big graphic images with glitter and everything. My dreams are detailed and crazy all at the same time.

4 years ago I was in such a different place. I only had one kid calling me Mommy, and now I have two. I was a contractor looking for a good federal dream and I found it. I had a cute little Mazda Protege that I loved and now I have an SUV full or kid movies and old french fries and crumbs. O_o Fly, not so fly.

The biggest change is that I’m a business owner. WHAT WHAT! One of those dreams you could say. I didn’t see it coming but I certainly welcomed it with open arms. I am a serial crafter, I get hooked on one thing and then I go balls to the wall with it. Then I’m over it and move on to the next craft and rinse and repeat again. August 2013 I opened From Mi To You and we custom design canvas shoes with all kinds of funky things like rhinestones (bling), Lego’s, buttons and any other creative things that come to this mind. Remember I said I was a dreamer. When I started the business again I had no expectations and I’m still in awe of how well it has done. I decided I was going to just see where it takes me and enjoy the ride. Well I’ve been doing just that. I had a small product feature on Fox 5 in December, I was like a school girl with excitement.

I’ve had a lot of wonderful clients, my friends have cheered me on every step of the way, my Love has been in my corner from day one and pushes me to reach my dreams. I said he encourages me to reach my dreams, did you read that? I’ve had plenty of doubts about me, about my business and he forces me to keep keeping on. I’ve been fortunate enough to network and meet a lot of wonderful people. They started as *virtual friends* and some became we hang out in real life friends. I don’t buy into that #nonewfriends crap. If you aren’t making new friends and new connections in life then you aren’t evolving. TWEET THAT! #mimicutelips

In these four years I’ve learned that when things are meant for YOU, they will fall into place without force. TWEET THAT! #mimicutelips I will simply continue to dream.
