This past year, knowingly and part unknowingly, I experienced a sabbatical. I have come to call it my "gap year." Uber designer, Stefan Sagmeister does it every seventh year—so I am right on trend! Watch his TED video here. But honestly, I feel like most people would hyperventilate at such a freedom, but secretly I was excited. Secretly, that is. Not having your name on a business card can sometimes make you feel insecure, pursuing your dreams can definitely make you insecure! This time has helped me spark some serious creativity that I have not experienced in some time. I wish everyone could have a year to refuel and dream big. I have gained clarity on what I want to pursue next, now I just need to blaze that trail! Pursuing my passion for design, spaces, and product, that are both beautiful and functional, are my goals. These are all ideas I have explored here on Domesticated Desk. Even after a summer break from blogging, I still need more focused time for these Dd projects. I might post every now and then, but just know, something is coming and it is coming soon.
