We’re coming to the end of what as been a spectacular year. We offer our heartfelt thanks to everyone who has supported us this year, in business and life, in both the big ways and the small ways. There is no way I could mention all of you by name, but in a way, the simple fact that I can’t make a comprehensive list of all our blessings this year that have come because of you both astounds and humbles me. Toward the beginning of 2011, a friend told me she thought this year would be one of unleashing…letting go of the limits we experienced in the past, unleashing our potential, and releasing God’s blessing in our lives. It’s been that and so much more.
Of all the memories that stick with me from this year, I have to mention the courage and strength of friends facing all kinds of hardships who managed to dig deeper still to love extravagantly, give generously, and bravely move forward through their challenging circumstances. You folks (should) know who you are, and you should also know that you inspire me greatly!
I have to mention and thank all the generous families who made our goal of sponsoring a child in 2012 a reality by passing on the word and participating in our Spirit of Giving Portrait Sessions. Thanks so much for helping to make that happen!
I would like to applaud the talented wedding professionals we worked with throughout the year, and especially thank those who believed in us enough to send clients our way. We can’t thank you enough!
For the couples who have invited us to become part of one of the biggest milestones in their lives this year – Thank you for sharing your love with us. I loved how each of your events were uniquely meaningful and beautiful, and I hope the coming years hold just as much meaning and beauty for each of you.
Lastly, the growth we’ve seen in our little family is something I will cherish always. I’m proud of the goals we’ve accomplished, and the dreams that we’ve realized, the milestones we’ve passed, and the adventures we still have ahead of us.
Wishing you a very Merry Christmas and a HAPPY NEW YEAR! With love, Emily
