It Takes a Village
I want to take a moment to give thanks to all the creative minds who helped support me on this journey. The saying "it takes a village" holds true, as when you decide to put yourself out there and share your work with the world, you can't do it alone.
Loved ones, close friends, acquaintances, and even strangers have all lent a hand. I would like to mention and acknowledge each of you. It's sometimes one little comment you hear that inspires a whole idea - every little tweak to a paragraph, every brainstorming session, every moment big and small has made this possible.
There are more of you than just the list below, and way more to say than I could ever express here, but take this as a small token of appreciation. THANK YOU with all of my heart!
Jon, Alex, Zoe, Eva, Vaughn, Jenna, Vanessa, Steph, Peter and many more.
P.S. Throughout this adventure, it has been incredibly important to me to support other small businesses wherever I can. It's been an honor to work with individuals near and far who bring a little bit of magic to their corners of the world.
To the local illustrator Kristine who crafted my thank you card with care, to Stephanie in Philadelphia, who hand-makes each of my envelopes, and to Joi in Chicago, who calligraphied my brand into life, thank you for turning my dreams and concepts into a reality. To the small farmers growing my flowers with loving care throughout the US, Canada, and Europe, to Sarah, the creator behind my beautiful ceramic vases, and to Ginny, the artist in California who designs my wonderful backdrops, thank you for giving me quality pieces to work with beyond my wildest dreams.
I also want to acknowledge two key individuals who worked to ensure this website was everything I imagined it could be - and more. Thank you Emily and Mascot Software Technologies, India.
We are all part of a bigger community that thrives when we support one another in what we do best. I am so inspired by the work that each of you create, and I'm proud to be a part of your journeys.
