a big announcement.

i have some big news!  i quit my full-time job as a tax accountant and am going to pursue my passion of freelance graphic design.  wednesday was my last day [hopefully ever] in corporate america and i could not be more excited to start this next chapter in my life doing what i love.  i have always loved design, but in the past two years my passion for it has grown exponentially.  i tried doing it on the side for a little bit, but with public accounting, there really is no such thing as a side job.  it’s impossible.  i can’t wait to dive full force into this whole freelance thing once we get back from our honeymoon!  i know it will be tough and extremely challenging (um, hello no steady income) — but in the best way possible and worth every bit of hard work.  i have so many things i want to create and so many projects i want to pursue and i am thrilled to be able to do that now!

we leave saturday for california (our wedding is in 10 days!) and i am feeling incredibly blessed and joyful right now in this exciting time with so much to look forward to.

lots more to come soon (and so many things i can’t wait to share!).  this whole freelance thing means more blogging too.  hooray!

*i gave my blog a temporary facelift (much cleaner and simpler!) until the grand launch of my new site sometime in january!  super excited about that too.

    WOW!! Congrats, Jaymee! So happy for you – it was a shame to have all that talent handcuffed by a “9-5” desk job. Let someone else take care of the silly taxes. Can’t wait to see what’s in store :)
