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.
