what a difference a year makes

It's been a year of growth for me, my family, my home, and my business(es). I closed out the year with a great sense of satisfaction and success. I have so many things to be reflect on and, in turn, learn from.

Most family is happy and my boys are thriving after one year of being "home" in Chicago. Can you believe how different they look after one year?

My home...although it is still a work in progress, is really coming together. After a year of working on it, we still have a ways to go. I could show hundreds of before and after pictures but this one makes me the happiest to look at...especially since we were "without" a dining room for so long and are now able to enjoy it along with my beautiful Louis Poulsen pendant light ( a gift my husband bought for me right before we moved in last year).

My business, after a full year, is doing very well. I am still nowhere near where I envision it to be, but am happy with where the year ended. We received tons of great press and started partnerships with some really wonderful companies. I have some SUPER ideas brewing for our product line and have already gotten a jump start on a site re-design to accoomdate some of these changes. I CAN'T WAIT to see where 2010 takes us...especially with all of the awesome things lined up for us already!
With all of this said. I can't forget to thank all of my amazing customers, friends and family for their support and referrals over the past year. Please stay tuned for more exciting things to come!

Happy New Year!
