“I’ve passed on a couple of things that would have kept me here in L.A. because my fiancé Jay has to be in Chicago, so if I was here, we would never see each other,” Cavallari says in Coco Eco magazine’s April/May issue. “The sacrifices we make for love…”
Cavallari, who has a shoe line with Chinese Laundry and recently launched her very own jewelry line, spoke about the importance of finding a balance between work and her personal life. She maintained that her designing career is perfect for this because it allows her to do what she loves while remaining close to her husband.
“It’s easy to get wrapped up in your career and have that be your only focus, and I want my marriage to work and last -- and family comes first,” she says. “The design work is great because I can do most of it from Chicago and I have so much fun with it. I love it and it all works out.”
The 26-year-old is set to marry Cutler this summer. The couple welcomed their first child Camden Jack Cutler, on August 8, 2012.
