In the spirit of the season, we wanted to say a sincere thank you for your support this year. I’d personally like to share gratitude with five core groups that helped to keep the dream of Season alive throughout 2021. No matter how small a company, it is something I have never wanted to — or could — do alone.
To our customers. Put simply, you make this whole thing work! Thank you for not only believing in our products, but buying them for yourselves, your clients, your friends and your family members. Thank you for every review and word of encouragement. With your support as customers, we can continue to grow, create more journals, and help more people capture life’s moments.
To my team. Lauren and Tara, you have made this journey so rewarding (and not to mention fun!). Watching you grow and flourish brings me so much happiness. You’ve taught me and continue to teach me each day, and I cannot wait to see what the future holds for your talented selves. Matt, thank you for your impeccable attention to detail and care that keeps our logistics running smoothly. You are the final puzzle piece to the operation, and one we couldn’t do without.
To our creative collaborators and guest bloggers. This year, our publication, The Season Blog, has truly emerged thanks to the beautiful community of voices (over 30 authors!) that have graced our pages week after week. You inspire me and the Season Community with your vast knowledge and heartfelt stories.
To my business mentors. Thank you for being my sounding board, my inspiration, and my accountability partners. I am blessed to have a trusted group of business owners to share this journey of entrepreneurship with. Thank you for challenging me and being fully authentic. As a result, you have helped Season grow and shine.
To my husband, Gio. There’s no one I’d rather be on this road of life with. Season promotes love, relationship-building, and sharing life’s seasons. I’m beyond lucky to do all three with you.
With a thankful heart,
