Hey everyone! So the weirdest thing happened the other day. My starburst mirror was featured on the DIY Show Off along with a few other amazing DIY mirrors. Although it as abnormal and AWESOME to be featured on a website like that, that wasn’t the weird part. In perusing the other mirrors that were featured I came across this mirror by DIY-er and Interior Designer Danielle Oakley.
I clicked on it and it took me to her AMAZING design blog and I was instantly hooked. I spent an hour or so reading through her posts and staring in awe at her impeccable taste and designs. I AM SUPER envious of her talent and style and have decided that I want to strip my house down and start all over due to all the over-inspiration that is now nagging at me. I came across an old posts of hers that was about her life a little bit and I was SHOCKED. This girl is living my parallel life. Although, her life looks much cuter. She is my age, went to the same college as me at the same time I was there, obviously does interior design, and (heres the kicker) she had a preemie about 3 years ago at 24 weeks gestation. Can you say COINCIDENCE. It was weird. And I had to write her to express my amazement. So I did. And now we’re friends. I seriously just wish she were living in Texas (shes in Utah) so we could go to lunch. Its not everyday, or ANY day, that I stumble across someone who went to the same college as me, does the same thing, has a micro-preemie kid, and happens to be my age. Anyway, shes great and super talented and you got to go check out her blog! Its FABULOUS! Go see her at danielleoakleyinteriors.blogspot.com!
