Never Stop

Never Stop Dreaming | A. Design | Chic to Chic Blog




Hello. My name is Aubrey and I am a planner. I plan my day, my month and the next five years. I plan birthday parties a year in advance, our kids names who probably won’t be here for at least three more years and I can’t stop. Planning is good. Planning is helpful. Planning is a stress reliever for me. But when things don’t go according to my plans, to my dreams… I have to change the plan. I have to rethink and work on a new plan. Dream up something a little different. Sometimes it’s hard. Especially when I really like my original plan, but things change. Dreams change. So here’s to new plans and new dreams. Bigger and better than the ones before. Let’s go!


Happy Tuesday, Friends!

Day at a Time, My Designs

Imagine that.


Imagine. We love doing that. Mr. M & I love sitting and chatting about the future.

What if we lived on the moon? What if we built a house in a tree, but forgot to build a ladder to get down? What if we moved to a country and pretended to speak a fake language? What if we named our child after a local zoo animal?

Okay, so we aren’t really THAT imaginative. We really just chat about where we would like to live, what are future kids will say, what our first house will look like, what color we’ll paint the walls.. the boring, but OH SO exciting kinds of things we like to imagine for our lives as a couple.

On another note, my mind wanders…

Sometimes I wonder where this fascination for art, photography, fashion and design will take me. Will I become an artist with an openings in galleries all around the country and if I did, what kind of art would I create? I love sculpture, but I’m really not that great, yet. I love design, but still have SO much to learn. Fashion, I’m a little short for runway, not that I see myself doing that, but with this crazy love of fashion and no fashion design skills, what could I, should I do? A buyer for a large department store, a stylist for locals or a window designer. There are just so many possibilities and so much that is still yet to be determined in this future of mine.

For all of you who are living your dream, what did it take to get there? How did you decide what you wanted to do, what you wanted to be when you grew up? As a lowly college student, I wonder how classmates around me seem to know exactly what they want and I just learned the pen tool in Illustrator. It’s quite a thought. There are so many possibilities, but where does that put me?

Imagine the possibilities. That’s a lot to think about on a Monday morning.

Happy Monday, Friends.
