Pigtown Design Turns Eight!

Share the News

I started this blog eight years ago this week. I had recently moved back from the UK and was so “homesick” for there that it physically hurt. I was working for my best college friend’s family firm, and his father would yell at me: You! With the dark hair!” and then a pencil would come whizzing my way, with me instead of the dart board. I was living in my parents empty house until I found a place to live and I’d just adopted Connor, the amazing Houdini dog. (Yes, that is Connor with his snout in my boot on our mudroom floor!)

I needed something stable in my life, and something to focus on, other than everything that was swirling around me. I had found Style Court and the Peak of Chic. From there I discovered other blogs, and decided to put some structure in my day by writing a blog. I had been writing for years, but it was mostly fundraising pieces, grant applications and public relations articles. Writing every day would keep me in practice until I returned to fundraising. Writing the blog would also give me a chance to hone my photography skills.2013-01-19_16-19-15_65

Now, eight years and 1,993 posts later, I am embarking on a new year of blogging. I can’t wait to see what adventures I have, what fun people I will meet, what beautiful things I will see and which readers I will get to visit with in person!dinner with friends

When I hit the “publish” button eight years ago, I never ever could have imagined how full my life would become because of Pigtown*Design.copyright transparent pig copy smgrey
