What A Year It's Been!!!


I want to take a moment to wish you all a safe and happy holiday season. I hope you all had a wonderful and productive year and I look forward to seeing you again in 2009!

I have to say 2008 has been my best and busiest year yet. Here is a brief timeline of the past year of my life:

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
We finally got married!!! The best celebration of our lives, with our closest friends and family members all in Jamaica. I still get chills thinking about how perfect everything went.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
I left my job as a product designer for Jonathan Adler to start my own stationery company. I can't wait to launch my website and collection early next year. I was hoping to get everything up and running by the end of the year but then a little something happened...
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
The biggest and best surprise of my life, I am six months pregnant!!! Patrick and I couldn't be more excited!!! I can't wait to share thoughts and design ideas about preparing for this aspect of my life. It was so amazing to share my wedding planning process with you and in return fall in love with anything and everything weddings! But because I am now entering a whole new planning process, I look forward to sharing my finds and thoughts with you on my blog!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I want to thank you all for your support and visits to Thoughtful Day! I look forward to seeing you back in the New Year and I wish you all a healthy, happy and prosperous 2009.

p.s. Please send me an email if you would like to be notified of the launch of my website. I can't wait to show you all!
