A Sailor I Will Be

This weekend was absolutely beautiful. I woke up on Saturday morning in the best mood because I looked outside, the sun was shining, and I was ready to start my day. It was the kind of day where you drive with the windows down and the music blasting. I decided to wear this dress because I really can't get enough of the nautical prints and colors this season. I really love mixing navy and red and of course nautical accessories are becoming some of my new favorite staples. I have yet to find the perfect "anchor" ring, but I have been scouring the internet looking!

 My dad and I decided to go for a walk in the park mid-day on Saturday and it was perfect. I love talking business and future plans with my Dad because he has so many ideas and he knows so much that it's really inspiring. I use that time to throw out ideas about what I want to do in a few months, and he gives me feedback that's always on point.

Being the daughter of an entrepreneur and small business owner is a great feeling. I was raised with the work ethic that motivates me to try my hardest and do what I am passionate about. On that note, plans following graduation are in the works! I am so excited for the next few months to unfold, and I am even more excited to start building a business that is exactly what I have been dreaming of for as long as I can remember. The future and the weather are looking brighter every day. Spring is coming!!

    It's inspiring hearing you talk about how excited you are about your business plans. I'm working on getting my graphic design business off the ground right now, so it's good to hear from other entrepreneurs! :)
