First of all, HAPPY NEW YEAR! 2016 felt like a train wreck, and I've never been happier to see a year end. It was a year of a lot of downs; whether we were saying goodbye to Ziggy Stardust, wishing for a spell to bring back Professor Snape, or when our hearts ached for Brussels and then again for the people of Nice, France; meanwhile closer to home, we held our breath for our brothers and sisters in Fort McMurray. And that's not even taking into consideration the results of a certain presidential election which sent shockwaves around the world. As the kids say, 2016 had zero chill! So, April and I are hoping that 2017 will bring a tide of rebirth and hope, and that in a world that showed us just how precarious living day-to-day can be, we hope that you and yours stay safe and happy as the year unfolds. 'Happy' sounds like a simple concept, but it's a lot bigger than we realize and affects so many areas of our life. We hope that you all find your own personal happy; whether it's mastering a headstand or surviving bikram yoga, celebrating your work and not being ashamed of it, prioritizing your health and reaping the positive benefits, finding your footing in your career, feeling content in your relationships, saving up to splurge on something luxurious for yourself or even committing to spoiling yourself once a month with a massage - in all your quests both big and small, we hope you are able to embark on a journey that brings you happiness. We'll keep bringing you all things wedding, but if you'll allow us, we'd like to share little gems that come along and have made us smile or given us a dose of figurative sunshine. There's been a lot of darkness as of late, but when we can catch those pinpoints of light that permeate the inky black veil, well, those lights are that much more beautiful, no?
Wishing you a day as limitless as you are~
Lisa and April
