I've written and re-written the first sentence of this post about 20 times. 2016 was a big year for us that came with triumphs, struggles, and lots of joy thanks to the addition of our sweet Ivy.
I'm certain Ivy is an angel sent just for our family. She is squishy as can be and has a calm, happy demeanor - the perfect balance to the constant craziness that comes from running a business.
Wren started preschool and dance - best thing to ever happen to our social butterfly. Nothing makes me happier than seeing her twirl around the house singing her cute little songs.
Studio McGee's second anniversary was this September! We added new members to our team this year and started a lot of new projects (2017 will be filled with lots of great reveals). Which reminds me, we officially launched our YouTube channel this summer! Thanks for watching and supporting us as we figure this whole video thing out....we have plans for a lot more in the coming year!
We launched McGee & Co.!!! It's basically like we started a new business while trying to run the other new business, ha! But really, it has been so cool to see our vision come to life. I've always wanted to curate a collection of killer home goods that allows people to make their spaces a beautiful place to be. When our homes feel good, we spend more time in them with the people we love.
We have poured our hearts into this business and I do not use that phrase lightly. Weighty decisions, sacrifices, big ambitions, and just plain old fashioned hard work are a big part of what happens behind the scenes. It's certainly not the glamourous side of what we do, but it's real.
This year, I am just grateful to have a business that causes stress! And two busy kids that make me happy (and also really tired). And lastly, I'm grateful for a husband that is still my very best friend even though we work together!
We're going to try our hardest to stay in the moment and soak in every second of this lovely holiday. And on that note, we hope you have a Merry Christmas! Thanks so much for your nice comments, likes, and high fives this year! We are truly so grateful for all of you.
