Today, my husband, Pat and I are celebrating our 6 month anniversary. It’s hard to believe that 6 months have already passed. The statement “time flies when you are having fun” really is the truth. I can say without a doubt, the past 6 months have been some of the best months of my life. To think just 6 short months ago, we were celebrating our love on our wedding day with all of our friends & family around us and then we jetted off to the Greek Islands to spend 2 amazing weeks with no worries surrounding us; just lots of love and of course the beautiful scenery and amazing food. How lucky we were to have that time together in one of the most beautiful places on earth. It was there on our balcony in Santorini over looking the Caldera we started to talk about our dreams and what we really wanted out of life. We talked about Seaside Invitations and the hopes and dreams I had for it and how we could make it a reality. I felt invincible, perhaps it was the swim in the Aegean, the beautiful setting we were in or the fact that I just married my best friend. I was ready to put my fears aside and take that leap into entrepreneurship and “live the dream”.
When we returned we settled into marital bliss, wrote all our thank you cards and just truly enjoyed each other and our new married life. Seaside Invitations was born in August and we haven’t stopped since. We started as a fully custom wedding invitation studio and have since added to our repertoire the monoLOVEgram, Tis the Season holiday cards (coming soon), personalized stationery, address labels and custom maps. We have partnered with various wedding professionals and we are currently in the process of being sold on Etsy.com and having our own Facebook page. Phew… I am tired just thinking about it.
All of this could not have been accomplished without the love & support from my husband. He has been there for me through out it all. I can see how proud he is just by the way he looks at me when I am telling him about my newest idea or what is on our very long to-do list.To see the love & support in his eyes and his embrace keeps me going and pushes me to be that much better. It is so inspiring and just fills my heart with joy. I am truly blessed to be loved by the one I love and to have a career that feeds my creative soul.
