A FINAL TOAST TO 2017

Happy New YeAR!

We are SO excited for all that 2018 has in store, but wanted to give a final toast to a fabulous 2017!

As we reflect on the past year, we are overwhelmed with gratitude.
It has simply been the best year yet!
We are blessed to have such amazing clients, design partners, friends and family.

In celebration of such a wonderful year, Jeannie's rounded up a few of her favorite personal and professional highlights.
