Life | Recently

There have been lots of changes going on in my life recently--some good, some not so much--and they've all made me realize one thing, nothing is forever.  It sounds so pessimistic but I mean it in the best way possible.  I started working from home two months ago and in that time I've had a lot of time to focus on what it is that I really want and my priorities.  A year ago I thought I had my whole life figured out--I was living in my dream apartment with the love of my life and working towards quitting a job that I was less than thrilled to go to everyday--and now I feel like I'm back at square one.  It's scary but this sense of unknown has forced me to break out of my sometimes shy shell and do things I never would have done before.  I'm working toward a new normal and it's quite exciting...I've been spending more time with friends, reaching out to other bloggers and small business owners and trying new things (like working out).  Some highlights include painting my office, chopping off my hair (new me, new look...I call this the Rose Byrne), client work and exploring Chicago.  Everyday has been different and that scares the crap out of me but that's what makes life exciting, right?

It's all so very exciting and I truly appreciate everyone's kind words of encouragement on the Kristin Kerr Interiors post that I shared last month!  I have some exciting things in the works...including my big apartment reveal, so stay tuned! 

What have you been up to recently?


  1. good for you Kristin, you will do great in whatever you do! I have some new changes too, a new job and it freaks me out!
    Hair looks great and so do you as usual :)

  2. This city makes you fearless!


    1. Yes in life you have to get fearless to get ahead! It's going to be scary but as Taylor Swift says FEARLESS isn't the absence of fear. It's not being completely unafraid. To me, fearless is having fears. Fearless is having doubts. Lots of them. To me, fearless is living in spite of those things that scare you to death. Letting go is fearless. I think love is fearless. But change is great and just watch in a year life will be more settled! Get it girl. P.s. love your blog! :)

  3. Love the new look! :) I'm going through a similar phase in my's nice to see/hear snippets of & about your personal life...I hope you'll continue to share! Good luck where ever your journey takes you! xo

  4. Don't be afraid! Go after everything your heart desires! Changes are good... I think! :)

  5. It's nice to know that someone else is in the exact same situation! I went through the same stuff in the past year and I know what you mean about the good and the bad... It's incredibly exciting and very scary at the same time... This whole thing has taught me to never be afraid to go after what you really want. Go for it girl! Great things are ahead :)
