Cool Hunting || Oval Dining Table

I was listening to a podcast last week (Emily Weiss on Girl Boss Radio) and she said something that I immediately went and wrote down.  (Like with a real pen and real paper… okay, not real paper rather the back of an AT&T bill.) “Where ever you are at is a place to be proud of.”  Gosh, that really resonated with me.  I think so many times there’s always someone two steps ahead of us or some next step phase of our life or business that we haven’t yet been able to implement, so rather than celebrating what …
