Change is well, change.  Sometimes change is good and sometimes change isn’t.  And then there are the times when it’s a bit of both.  But change is never boring.

Where am I going with this? Well, I’ve got change coming my way.  I’m excited and nervous all rolled into one with this one….

As you all know, I love decorating and I’ve been doing it for a long time now, 16 year actually…makes me sound old!  And my decorating career has taken another turn.  Starting on Monday, I will be working at Costandi Design in Truro.  This is an very exciting move for me.  The potential is huge with this opportunity.

But, what does this mean for the decorating side of Farm Fresh? Nothing, actually…it’ll be business as usual! I will still be working with my own clients and doing work in the studio, too.  I worked hard to bring my own business to where it is and I’m not letting that go!

What does this mean for me? Well, it means I’m giving up two other part-time jobs that I loved to be able to take on this new challenge.  I enjoyed working with Keith at The LifeShelter, dreaming and planning for the future work of the shelter and organizing our local Coldest Night of the Year event.  And my time with the gals at Above & Beyond Home Decor was exactly what I needed – great accessories, good times and lots of laughs.  I’m sad to leave these positions but leaving on good terms makes leaving so much easier. Thank you for being dream employers, I enjoyed my time with you all!

I’ll be continuing my work with At Home on the North Shore, as well.  It’s so much fun, such great people to to work with and plus, it’s the perfect combo with what I do.

Life is full of twists and turns and one never knows what will happen next.  I can’t say I saw this change coming.  I didn’t go looking for it, I wasn’t looking to make a change.  But, sometimes the plans we have aren’t the plans we need to follow.  I’d be foolish not to take this chance and see where it takes me.  And that’s the exciting part of it for me.


My commute is a lovely drive through winding roads.  My children will be well cared for after school.  Meal-planning is looking like a must….Jennifer….you hear that??  And I’m upping my fashion game….although that’ll take help…eeek!  #sendhelp #imnotevenkidding


My life and career is ever evolving… {not unlike my home – just look at the changes my living room has undergone! } Constant minor and major changes, experiences and opportunities have brought me to where I am today. I am thankful for the challenges, life lessons and opportunities, without them I wouldn’t be who I am today.  So, Monday, I’ll dress up, hop in the car and enjoy the drive.  I’ll walk through the doors and do the best I can with the skills and gifts I am armed with, with my head held high.

If you need me, I’m still here….same old Lori!
