If I remember correctly, it was January of 2012 that I signed our contract and paid the deposit to our web designer – Love-Inspired
. And if I remember correctly, it was around the same time that we began working on our new logo and look with our graphic designer – the talented Erica of The Summer House
. Let me tell you – I was MOTIVATED to get this project done. After the gals at Love Inspired told me that the turnaround time for a new blogsite depends mostly on the client providing the content, I confidently told them how we would have everything they needed to get going really
quickly and that we were wanting to have things launched as soon as possible. And here we are…just a mere two years
later. Finally, we have arrived. 🙂
Many, many thanks to:
+ Cathy of Love-Inspired
. Thank you for your persistence, your kindness and your patience through this whole process. Truly, we so appreciate you and are beyond thankful for the work you have put into this project.
+ Erica of The Summer House
. Thank you, yet again, for creating something wonderful for us that will help move our business forward. As we’ve told you before, we think you are an incredible designer, but are even more of an incredible person. We are better people ourselves for knowing you.
+ Jenna of Red, White and Green Photography
. You know we think the world of you and your work. Your pictures – of our family and of others – astound us. Thank you for taking our headshots for this site in what seems like forever
ago. We love you!
Also, thank you to everyone that joined us for launch week! We would be remiss to not thank those involved who helped everything come together as we led up to today:
+ Kymm of Who’s the Fairest
(for making me feel so pretty – every time you do my hair and makeup, I feel like a million bucks)
+ Maria of Littlekind
(for the adorable “3” pillow)
+ Our amazing babysitters (for loving our babies while we put in many hours for this project)
+ Our studio assistant – Julie (for having the best attitude and heart to help us do whatever we needed. The success of this week wouldn’t have happened without you)
+ All of y’all who have supported us through this process…whether online or in person. Your words of encouragement have meant so much to us.
From here, we invite you to do two things:
1) Sit back, relax and take a look around our brand new blogsite! We’ll be sharing other pieces of our new brand in the weeks to come…stay tuned for that.
