While technically it is the 2nd day of 2010, our little store was closed yesterday so today is, in fact, the first day of 2010 for Gus & Ruby Letterpress. Welcome, 2010!
2009 was a big, BIG year for Whitney, me, Gus & Ruby. It's been a year of learning, challenges, sweat (lots of sweat), tears and plenty of laughter. We've learned all about priming, painting, building and setting-up shop in Portsmouth. We got a little press and spent a lot of time working at the press. We have healthy hearts. We helped our amazing clients welcome new babies and join lives together. Whitney was inducted to the Athletic Hall of Fame at Plymouth State University. We've worked with some incredibly talented people. And we've made some fabulous new friends and strengthened friendships with old friends. Phew. It's been quite a year!
2010 is the start of a new decade and we're planning to really go for it. We're looking forward to a busy, busy planning season for 2010 weddings (starting now! book your private appointment asap!), have some seriously rad ideas for Gus & Ruby custom work and Gus & Ruby goodies for the store and are hoping to continue growing our business. Whit is getting married (hooray!), one of my besties, Lauren, is getting married (hooray!) and there a growing number of bambinos who will make their appearance this year. Sounds like it's going to be a good one, right? We thinks so.
Thanks for a most wonderful, life-changing year, 2009. Pleased to meet you, 2010; I have a feeling we're going to be great great friends.
Wishing you all health, happiness and prosperity in the coming year.
