Oh my gosh... if you told me ONE year ago that this is where I would be today, I would have said you were absolutely crazy. This year has been full of so many wonderful twist and turns, and even more fabulous people. So as we get ready to bring in the new year enjoy this little recap!
1) We have successfully completed our first full year as a business. Thats right people TLBS turned ONE YEAR OLD at midnight! I can hardly believe it. In some ways I feel like this year has flown by, but in others I feel like this is what we have been doing for a life-time... I suppose thats what happens when you get to do something you love each and every day. Even though learning how to run a business is challenging, this experience is one I am so proud of, and wouldn't change it for the world.
2.) We have some seriously amazing wedding under our belt. Somehow we managed to get THE BEST CLIENTS EVER this year! A few of our highlights from this year are: | shooting a wedding in New York City! | being published on multiple blogs, one being Style Me Pretty! | shooting one of my best friends weddings, and was a bridesmaid at the same time! | actually filling our calendar with weddings our very first year.... seriously we were hoping to book about 7... Not over 20! | I got to attend a pretty great conference where I got to hear THE Katelyn James speak!
3.) With all the amazing things happening within TLBS it is easy to forget some of our personal accomplishments along the way, but we have had some of those too! Jordan is officially half way through his PhD program, and got some of his researched published... that smarty pants. My Sister got married this year!... I still can't believe that! We also celebrated our one year wedding anniversary, which was awesome :)
It really has been such an incredible journey, but absolutely none of this would be possible without YOU. To all our friends, family, clients, and followers alike... we could never thank you enough for supporting our dream which in turn supports our family. With that being said, I am fondly saying goodbye to 2014, and hello to 2015 with this little collection of some of our "best of 2014" images :)
