This summer Maggie and I have been talking a lot about being brave. She was nervous about learning to swim, but now that she knows, she tells me over and over how brave she is. This constant talk of being brave has made me want to be brave in my own life- so I did it! For years I have wanted to switch from “fifth and hazel” to my own name. When I started my company, I wanted to do stationery, but it has since grown into other endeavors (which are better for me) I have been fearful of changing to Melanie Burk because I worried people wouldn’t like the switch, or wouldn’t know who I was. But I am going to be brave!
I am still here guys, just now as me: melanie burk.
