Wish Upon A Star and Your Dreams Will Come True

Have you ever wished upon a star?

Is gazing up to the beautiful night sky and wishing upon a star the same as

gazing up to the heavens and saying a prayer. I think so.

As long as I can remember, I always loved decorating.

I would sit quietly on a sofa of my parent’s friends home, being a well behaved girl

along with my siblings and gaze at the room,

thinking how the room would look so much better with things in different places.

I never had the opportunity in my early years for formal education/training in Interior Design . . .

just wasn’t in the cards . . . my destiny at that time. . .

but I held the love for decorating close to my heart.

As the years went by, it was time to pursue that dream.

My wish upon a star . . . . . and one of those wishes came true!
