I’ve always said I would steer this business ship with my heart. What I didn’t realize in the beginning was what that declaration would truly mean years down the road. But, I knew it wouldn’t be easy. But, I hoped it would be WORTH IT. It has been. Hope it always will be.
2016 was the year of meeting families right where they were. The joy-filled times, long awaited pregnancies, beautiful adoptions, the sleepless nights, after divorce, before + after scary diagnoses. You brought your babies home and we sat in the nursery and just talked about it all. We’d gather together again 3 months later and we’d talk about returning back to work. 6 months later life was getting a little easier….9 months were the best and 1 year! “How is my baby one year old?!”, you’d say. And, I’d respond with, “How do I have a TEN YEAR OLD!” I’ll never forget the laughter, tears and the stories shared.
I met you at the park, by the water, downtown, at the hospital, on the farm, and in your most sacred place…HOME. You’d jump out of your car or open your door with the most beautiful embrace that I’d carry with me for a long time.
I’m so grateful for you all. You brought me great JOY. With many others you could call upon to capture your life, you called me. I’ll never take that for granted.
Waving goodbye to last year and walking in complete faith of 2017!
