A year ago I set forth the intention of taking my creative powers to the masses. I had so much energy that I felt needed to be shared. On April 23, 2010, Hey Love was born.
And it's been an amazing year ever since. I learned how to run a business, I networked with amazing people, I learned even more ways to be creative, and most importantly, I learned what I wanted to do with my life.
I just wanted to thank everyone who has been supportive of me over the past year and helped me get to where I am now.
To my parents for, despite being hesitant about this venture at first, being there for me and letting me bombard their house with my crazy ideas whenever we had a party.
To my friends and family, for being awesome taste-testers and letting me bounce ideas, thoughts, and rants off of them. For letting me go crazy with planning or decorating their party because I needed an outlet. For not being afraid to tell me when I was over my head or if I needed to push towards a fear in order to succeed. For letting me talk incessantly about the ideas I couldn't contain to just myself.
To my dog, who waited patiently by in the kitchen or while sitting on me while I worked late nights on my laptop. For always being by my side and helping me de-stress. And for being the cutest mascot!
To the amazing clients of mine - friends, family, colleagues, small businesses, and strangers who have become friends - obviously I wouldn't have been in business without you and I am so thankful for all you have done for me, and hopefully what I have been able to do for you.
Thank you everyone for supporting me, spreading the word, recommending your friends, giving me opportunities and so much more. It's been such an amazing year and I can't wait to see where this goes in years to come!
