I found this quote originally on Pinterest (do you follow me?) and it hit home immediately.

As all my Type-A brothers and sisters out there can affirm, I can be way too hard on myself, but easily give grace to those around me. Maybe a little heart change and reminding myself of this quote (which is now taped to my door to see as I leave each morning) is just the ticket.


Here’s my first full hand-written quote since I began my calligraphy journey. It’s a little wonky looking, but hey, grace– right?


Beginning of Becoming

Welcome to the first post of Becoming!

After a few years (including time in high school and throughout college) of blogging at my previous blog Let Go of What You Know, I have decided it’s time to transition into a blog that is more fitting for where I am now, hence, the beginning of Becoming!

I hope that this space serves as place to document my “becomings”– a wife, a doctor, a home decorator, a gardener, a calligrapher, a basset hound owner, plus the many new beginnings I will adventure into over the next few years.

Expect to encounter a little bit of wedding inspiration, design inspiration, everyday ramblings, + a glimpse into my life throughout these posts.

Until next time!
