GOODBYE 2018!

“Hope smiles from the threshold of the year to come / Whispering ‘it will be happier’…” ― Alfred Lord Tennyson


2018 has been quite a year of milestones.  I do not think I have ever worked harder or been more exhausted! We participated in our largest showhouse to date in Atlanta, completed our first retail boutique for Trina Turk, persevered though another year living with a teen and tween, and celebrated our twentieth wedding anniversary.  It was a sprint to get to the finish line of the holidays, deadlines, and end of year projects. I am incredibly grateful to the wonderful clients, artists, vendors, workrooms, colleagues, family, and friends that support me and allow me to do what I love everyday. 

New Year’s Day always brings with it a clean slate. I typically share my intentions on the first day of the year.  Looking back through past years, they stay pretty consistent so I here is a look back at some of my favorites!
