We could not be more excited to introduce “Deeply Rooted,” the official blog of Upstate Roots Design! I (Kristin) am the voice behind our blog and it’s been a long time in the making. Writing has been a passion of mine for as far as I can remember. I have dealt with many life experiences through writing, allowing me to come out on the other side with perspective, a deep understanding of my feelings, and openness to share my heart. Combine that with my crazy brain that keeps me up at night, wearing my heart on my sleeve, and this new calling to share with old and new friends who may identify…and here we are!! They say timing is everything and I am so gosh darn excited to start connecting with you all.
So, to clarify, “Deeply Rooted” was planted a long time ago…has always been growing, but just truly started being watered. Our business, is now a platform to allow it to have a home and I sincerely, from the bottom of my heart, hope you enjoy.
While we are a design & staging company and LOVE what we do, we are also 2 normal everyday humans who experience all the balls life throws at us. This blog is here to inspire, to feel ALL the feelings, to empower, to make you feel “imperfectly perfect,” especially in a crazy media world that makes you feel like you are constantly falling short. Let’s spread magic together…In the beauty of design & by being unapologetically ourselves.
Here is some of what you can expect from "Deeply Rooted":

Losing a Piece of Your Heart – This is an unexpected personal journey of losing my best friend, my daddy to cancer at the age of 55 in 2016. He is a big part of my why, and what started this journey in the first place. It’s not just about the “C” word. It’s about the journey of a very special relationship and living life with a constant void, a renewed sense of purpose, and a grateful, broken heart.
