Sometimes life throws you curve balls when you least expect them. The universe turns itself upside down and you find yourself holding on for dear life. I am currently in the midst of change and I’ve decided to grant myself the opportunity to just allow it to happen.
I’ve always been a very driven person, especially with my business. I strive for perfection every day. However, my personal life was far from perfect. When things were rocky in my marriage and subsequent divorce, I went head first into my work. I poured all my emotion into running a successful business because I had no control over the other things in my life. Chic Galleria Publications, LLC has been my life for over 12 years. I love what I do.
Recently, Chip and Joanna Gaines announced that they were no longer going to host Fixer Upper. They have so many irons in the fire, that they have decided to let one go. I completely understand this. I’ve cut way back on any work involving Chic Galleria except to feature the designers who so graciously send me invitations to Fashion Week each season. I have not had time to focus on Style by Beth nor write new e-books surrounding my capsule wardrobe philosophy. I’m thrilled with the immediate success of this blog and my e-books, but I just haven’t been able to truly concentrate on any of it.
So as I write this, I’m in a relationship with an incredible man who makes me smile. I’m learning to enjoy life again outside of running my business. I’ve found that there have been so many things that I’ve missed in the last 12+ years because I didn’t allow myself the time to discover them. Life has been re-awakened for me and I’m embracing every minute of it. Together, we are renovating a 2008 Extreme Makeover Home into a Bed and Breakfast. You can follow our progress on our Facebook page: The BarDew Valley Inn and Instagram: BarDew Valley Inn. Our website BarDew Valley Inn is BarDewValleyInn.com.
So dear readers, please know how much I love and appreciate all of you. I hope that I have been able to help you with your capsule wardrobe journey and that you’ve been able to feel the stress release I experience from having a minimalist wardrobe.
My staff and I will still be concentrating on our current CGP clients and accepting new clients on a limited basis. That part of my business is my life-blood as well as my bread and butter. That is NOT going anywhere! I’ll also be still covering Fashion Week on Instagram @ChicGalleriaFW.
I’m starting a new life journey now which involves a very special person and a new business! If you’re ever in my neck of the woods, I hope you will book a room and come stay in my country luxury B&B.
