A friend told me today, "You know, you really have a great job." Simple phrase, but it got me thinking about how lucky I am to do what I do. For example, this was my work environment this afternoon.
That's me sitting on the couch working on a wedding poster. My middle son sat next to me watching Spongebob, my youngest was busy constructing a Playmobil city around my feet.
It's how I work most of the time, actually. On the couch hanging out with my boys enjoying a relaxing afternoon together. Sure, I've been up working past midnight every day this week. Functioned off of 4 hours of sleep on Wednesday, and I'll probably be awake by 6 a.m. tomorrow. But when I do wake up tomorrow morning, I'll be busy creating an invitation for a 40th birthday party. And whether I'm working on a design for a birthday, a wedding, or a birth announcement, every day I get to be a part of a celebration in someone's life.
I admit, sometimes I'm in my bathrobe creating designs. There are evenings I'm answering emails while enjoying a glass of wine. There's even a chance I'm assembling invitations with an out of control Playmobil vehicle driving around my legs.
And I wouldn't have it any other way.
