TWO. THOUSAND. FIFTEEN.
This year is one for the books. It’s been a year of excitement, growth, opportunity and anticipation. Take a look //
// Woven & Wed launched
// Styled & created countless styled shoots
// Made it in print
// Walked alongside couples in their pursuit of marriage
// Met some incredible people in the wedding industry.
// Recognized my love for typography & hand lettering.
// Hosted the first ever Woven Workshop
// Ate far too many donuts.
God is good. We hustled and He blessed. Our expectations have been exceeded and we are so excited to have reached so many of our goals in the first year.
However, If I’m being honest with myself, I also have to write that this year has proved to be one of the hardest I’ve had to encounter. Alongside all of the amazingness – 2015 presented countless changes, challenges & heartache.
// Transitioning to life back in Minneapolis
// Starting a business (and the overwhelming process that it is)
// Staying true to who I am, what I want to accomplish & what I believe
// Another year of some of my deepest desires not being met
// Financial stress
// Unanswered prayers
// Hard trials and conversations with friends
I’ve told many close to me, countless times, that I’m ready for this year to be over.
And now it is.
I’ve spent tireless hours dreaming of the future.
And here it is.
But before that happens. I want to look back. I want to see another year of evidence that the Lord continues to work relentlessly in my life. That I’ve persevered and am coming out on the other side. I want to leave 2015 knowing and seeing that the Lord is good and proclaiming that He is enough through each season and year of life. I want to leave 2015 encouraged and expectant of what’s to come.
There’s a little of my heart, heading in to the new year. We’re excited for all that Woven & Wed will do in 2016. We have some big things in store and can’t wait to share them with you. May you all have a celebratory happy new year!
Cheers to 2016.
