I have always believed that the mind somehow finds a way to accomplish the things we desire most in life. Aristotle said, “We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit.” Writing a book has been my lifelong dream. From childhood on I dreamed, plotted and planned, though I was never entirely certain what shape it would take. As I approached my twenties I became obsessed with houses and shelter magazines. Eager to learn from the experts I began my own road to writing. First in notebooks, then a blog and eventually Designers at Home.
