In April I celebrated 4 years of owning my small business. FOUR YEARS! It got me thinking about all of the things to happen to me in that four-year timeframe. Y’all have seen me grow and change. You’ve been with me through a lot of life events: my parent’s divorce, job changes, getting engaged, buying a house, and planning a wedding. You’ve seen my work transform over the years. You guys have been through a lot with me!
Did you know that every time you support my business, you are supporting me? Every session, every wedding, every album… all of that has allowed me to create a life I am loving and that I am proud of. I love working hard and doing the daily hustle, but it means nothing without your support.
Because of you guys, I have been able to pay off my car, abolish my student loan debt, buy a house, and pay for our own wedding. I couldn’t do this without you guys! Heck, y’all help me pay my bills and health insurance each month too!
Gah!!! How crazy is that?! Never in a million years would I have thought this was possible. But golly, every time someone supported my small business, they were supporting me and helping me grow. Don’t get me wrong. For 2 years I was working a full-time preschool job AND had 2 full wedding seasons, but that hustle made it even sweeter. I couldn’t have done it without your encouragement and motivation.
I am so thankful for all of your support and love for this small business of mine these past 4 years. I will never be able to full explain my gratitude to y’all. EEE!!! I just wish I could give you all a big ol’ hug!!! 🙂
Anywho, aside from all of the sappiness, just know I love you! Thank you for being there for me and cheering my business on! Cheers to many more!!! 🙂
