I’ve been putting off making a 2018 post because I don’t like endings, especially after such a great year! I obviously use this account to share lots of my art & truthfully, that’s what I spend most of my time doing... but when I reflect back on the year it’s not really the art pieces I’ve finished that I am sentimental about. It’s always the time spent with family & friends, the exploring, the accomplishments & progress, the connections & relationships... those are the memories I will cherish, but there’s always more to be hopeful for & excited about. So there are no ends unless we make them. When I was going to bed the other night, I came across a little letter that TJ wrote for me on our wedding day. In it he wrote, “after the wedding we will pursue our dreams together and I promise to be right there with you along the way.” 🧡 When you’re young & fresh out of college you think “Sure! Of course we will pursue our dreams! What else would we do?!” You have no idea what that actually means or entails or the perseverance & teamwork it requires. I had no idea how much those words would mean even more to me after we’d began to live them. 🧡 I can’t fully express what it means to me that we get to live out those words & fill our lives with so much love & joy. I’m just really grateful. Thank you, friends, for rallying behind me, for supporting & encouraging me, for making this the best year for my business & one that will truly be hard to beat on a personal level, as well. I really am not interested in a business to customer transaction, one & done experience. I’m one lady & I’m fortunate to have the help of my husband, family & friends! So when you support my business, you’re actually supporting us & it means so much to me that I sincerely want to connect with you! I hope I have more opportunities to do that in 2019. Until then, rock on butterflies! 🦋 Have a bangin’ New Year’s Eve!
