Happy Tuesday and Happy 6th Birthday to Belladia! We can’t believe it has gone by so fast. As we look back on our six years of ups and downs, disappointments and victories, the most important thing we have learned is that you don’t have to (and shouldn’t) do it alone. There are so many people who have helped us along the way and supported us through good times and bad. It’s awesome to know we have such a beautiful group of committed and loving clients, friends, and partners.
There are a few people we’d like to thank in particular:
Melissa and Thane Magee – They have been with us from the beginning. Their friendship, unwavering support, cheerleading, and generosity without hesitation is the definition of selfless love. When things looked bleak, they were always there with love (and sometimes a Flurry).
Stacey and Chris McKibbin – For their guidance, hugs, belief, motivation, celebrations, perspective, uncomfortable conversations, butt kicking, and most importantly love and respect have not only made Belladia better, they have made us better.
Chris Keith and Eddie Fisher – These two have been clients since our first year in business. (Chris has been with us since before the beginning, when Jessy was just freelancing on the side!) Their loyalty and support have meant so much.
And special recognition to our friend Sharon Pugh. She was a beautiful friend, cheerleader, and b**** session partner. She always had our back—believing in us even when we didn’t believe in ourselves. We miss her smile and amazing laugh every day. But her support lives on in the form of two cards she gave us at the beginning, they are now in frames on the office wall as a reminder to never give up because things do get better.
Thank you to all of you. Thank you for letting us do what we love every day and letting us be a part of your business. We hope that we have been able to help you in some small way conquer a hurdle in your business. Our cheerleading (as well as marketing and design) services are always available. Just give us a ring to let us know how we can help.
With much love—
Jessy + Lisa
