This year has been eventful for me to say the very least. At the beginning of the year, I had just started a new job with a healthy snack start-up that hadn’t even launched yet. My husband and I were living in a shoebox-sized apartment in Manhattan, and I was still running my online shop. It was pretty much 24/7 turmoil.
In May, my mom had a health scare which put a lot of things into perspective for me. It also started my coffee-drinking addiction which I am currently in the process of quitting. Holy headaches, though.
I made some big decisions to improve the quality of my life. I could have kept chugging along as-is but I knew that a burn-out was around the corner so I decided to shut down my boutique and focus on my job and Lemon Stripes. In September we made a quick, gut decision to move to Connecticut so that I could be closer to work and we could have a lot more space. Living in the ‘burbs has made me a better, calmer person and has started my season of killin’ it.
We launched Nourish Snacks in the spring and it has absolutely exploded. I was promoted to Marketing Director and I’m finally, for the first time in my life, so happy to go to work every day. I love my coworkers, my creative role in the company, and the product. I can’t wait to see what happens next year for Nourish.
2015 is going to be a big year for me personally too! I’m turning 30 in July (Eek!) and we’ll be celebrating that milestone in Italy, Anel and I are going to start looking for a house to buy, and we’ll be one more year closer to having children. Full disclosure, I don’t know yet when that will happen but not anytime in the next 6 months. I’m also excited to announce that starting in February, I’ll be working closely with Victoria to completely redesign and revamp this blog.
Until then, here is a look back at some of my favorite outfits from the last year. Thank you all for following along and I hope to bring you an eve Happy New Year!
