A Personal Note of Thanks

  AmyLynneOriginals - Glessner Photography 124

Thank you, thank you, thank you!  Friends, family, clients (past, present, and future), wedding professionals, and followers that I do not even know...I want to personally thank each of you! Every comment, like, referral, and words of encouragement has lifted me to where I am today.  My heart is swelling with gratitude!

As my followers, you may have noticed that I rarely post anything of a personal nature on my blog - it has all been about the flowers!  It is just not intuitive for me to write openly about myself...but I am working on it.  I am progressively realizing that it is not just the designing that has gotten me here!

ALO was a dream I carried inside my heart right after college, through the early years of my marriage, and even when my oldest child was an infant (she is almost eleven - yikes, where does the time go?!?!?).  This little dream was born in the basement of my old home and has blossomed into something that amazes me each day.  I kind of think of ALO as one of my kids – growing and changing so quickly it often takes my breath away!

Above is a picture of me in my studio taken by the talented Elizabeth Glessner.  I love it because she captured how I feel when I am in my studio - truly happy.

Today is the first Friday in quite some time I have not been designing.  I am embracing this break as a time to refresh my soul and kindle my imagination.  I can’t wait to see what comes next.

Thank you for your continued support – I am truly grateful.

Warmly, Amy
