Over the last few months my business has taken over my life. People always tell you how difficult it will be, but no one really tells you how much it will affect everything else in your life. There are days that I’m so happy and over the moon about my new career, and there are other days when I literally feel like I have every reason to give up. I don’t sleep very much anymore, I’m always sick because of stress, I’ve lost over 10 pounds since I launched the business in May, and sometimes I find myself in a ball of tears for no reason at all. But, I’m lucky enough to have found someone who supports me 110%. To him, I have no other option but to succeed, and it really makes me want to be better and do better every single day. Vince has never once told me I couldn’t do something I set myself to. Yeah sure, he tells me I’m crazy and always tries to get it across that I’m only one person and can’t do everything at once, but he never fails to believe in me. I’m sure it’s scary knowing that your significant other can never imagine herself working a steady job and having a stable income, especially knowing we want to get married and get a house in the future. But, his first priority as a significant other is to make sure I’m happy. And even if that means diving head first and essentially taking this risk with me, he’s in it without a blink. Sometimes I feel like a terrible girlfriend because I’ll forget about important things going on in his life, or I’m too tired to even ask him how his day went when I finally crawl into bed in the middle of the night (or morning).. I mean, he completely understands it’s not because I think his life is any less important than mine, but I’m just under a lot of pressure right now. He’s the most selfless person I know, and a lot of the reason why I haven’t thrown in the towel yet is because of him. I am all for being a one-woman team and not relying on anyone for your happiness. You know, some real #girlboss shit. But I do know that when you do find that one person who is so damn special to you, it’d be stupid to not treat it as such. Love hard, y’all. Life is short and you only get one chance to live it the way you want. Because you never know.. In your next lifetime you could be reincarnated into a rock, and well that’s sort of a miserable existence. (PS- This photo was taken earlier this year when we shot my first lookbook. He flew all the way from Canada and is holding my bag of swimsuits and trying not to be blown away with what felt like 80mph winds.)

Forcing my sister to take a hipster picture. She wasn’t amused, as you can see.
